Though the team finished fourth in their heat won by Jamaica, their time of 3:26.29secs was still enough to see them through as one of the best losers from the two heats. The time returned by the Nigerian quartet anchored by Regina George was their season’s best.

Meanwhile, things fell apart Friday  night for Team Nigeria after the women  team finished fourth  in the final of the 4x100m relay won by the USA team, who set a new world record time of 40.82secs to win gold, ahead of  Jamaica, whose time of 41.41secs, earned them the silver.
