It has been reported by our media colleagues, EME News, that former 100m world record holder, Jamaica’s Asafa Powell, is saying that the Jamaican 4x100m relay team has been practising together and could break their world record in Rio.
According to a story carried by the Gleaner, Powell, absent from the flat event for the first time in his career, spanning four Olympics, said, “We definitely have the team to do it. Over the years, we’ve had great teams and we have managed to run great relays with very little training and time with each other. This year, we are spending far more time working on the relay and with us, every time we go out on the track, a world record is possible in the 4x100m because we are always prepared for it. It’s just to get the stick around smoothly,” he said.
The current world best is 36.84, clocked in London four years ago by Jamaica running, Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt.

Unlikely all of them are far of their best at the moment. Yohan is nowhere near where he was years ago, neither is Asafa (didn’t even make it as an individual) and the other two are slower than the ones that broke the record (okay one of them was a drug cheat).
That 36.8 will be rebuked because Carter is a dope-boy
powell is still my Athlete if u dont have nuhting to say positive dont comment .and how can they break the World record an lose what u wrote dont make sense think about that
Powell, Powell, the Jamaican 4×100 team can break their world record and still lose. Powell’s statement makes it clear why an athlete with his gifts never won an individual world championship, and never will.
