T&F: Team USA Wins Gold In 4x400m Relay At World Championships

After Matthew Boling ran a leg on the Team USA 4×400-meter relay that had the fastest qualifying time, America earned gold in the event’s final round as the World Athletics Championships wrapped up in Budapest, Hungary, on Sunday.

Quincy Hall, Vernon Norwood, Justin Robinson and Rai Benjamin edged France by more than a second with a world leading 2:57.31 to win the 4x400m relay world title.  Boling teamed with Trevor Bassitt, Christopher Bailey and Robinson to run a 2:58.47 to have the fastest qualifying time on Saturday.





Elena Kulichenko, who just completed her sophomore season with the Lady Bulldogs, passed over the high jump bar at 1.90 meters/6 feet, 2 ¾ inches to tie for 13th place.

This marked the last of nine days at the World Championships.  During the meet’s first day on Aug. 19, Boling ran the third leg for Team USA’s mixed 4x400m relay that won a gold medal with a world record time.
