The United States U20 4x400-metre team at the World Under-20 Championship in Tampere, Finland are the quickest through to the final, but only just, with a Jamaican team showing themselves up for a fight. 

Pushed to the line and tested to the limit in a fiercely competitive race, Sokwakhana Zazini lived up to the massive expectations heaped upon his slight shoulders to strike gold in the 400m hurdles and take South Africa's second-ever men's gold in the event, and to join Zenéy van der Walt for the country's sweep of the discipline at these championships. 

It took until the final event on the penultimate day of the World U20 Championships in Tampere, Finland for the United States to win their first gold medal but after missing out on individual titles in the 100m and 200m, their sprinters combined superbly to win the 4x100m relay title for the sixth successive time.

Briana Williams, the World U20 100m champion, got her 200m campaign off the ground on Friday by winning her heat in 23.32s and looking like she has a lot more in store.

If this event plays out according to the form chart, the USA will be in a strong position to produce the first national 1-2 200m finish since Nigeria took gold and silver at the inaugural edition in 1986. 

Chanel Brissett leads the world U20 lists with 12.75 – the second fastest time in history at U20 level – but the 18-year-old still missed out on a place on the US team for Tampere.
