When the Relay race was born?

Let’s discover together some curiosity about the Relay race

The Relay race was born as an idea at the end of ‘800 in a University of Pennsylvania. Each team consisted of four athletes who had to walk a mile each, holding a cylindrical wooden stick. In the decades since the length of the race was reduced, millet was replaced first by the 400 meters, then, by 100.

The world record in the 4 × 100 Meters Relay is held, with 36 “84, the Jamaican National (composed of Nesta Carter, Michael Frater, Yohan Blake and Usain Bolt), record set at the Olympic Games in London 2012.

The women’s record is detained by the US National (composed by Tianna Bartoletta, Allyson Felix, Bianca Knight and Carmelita Jeter) with a time of 40 “82, established August 10, 2012, also during the 2012 edition of the Olympic Games.
