VIDEOS} Jamaica dominates, sweeps sprint events at World Athletics Championships

Jamaica closed the 14th IAAF World Athletics Championships in fine style on Sunday as the Black, Green and Gold, won the Championships' final two events, the women's and men's 4x100m relays.

Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, who anchored the women's relay team home in a  Championship and National Record, will return home with three gold  medals, a first for Jamaica and the Caribbean.

She had earlier won the 100m in 10.71 and 200m in 22.17.

However, Usain Bolt, track and field's biggest star, brought things  to fitting end by anchoring Jamaica to a 37.36 4x100m victory. 

Jamaica without Michael Fraser and Yohan Blake, members of last  year's World Record breaking team (36.84), was expected to face stiff  competition from USA, but Kemar Bailey-Cole and Nickel Ashmeade, the  replacements, handled themselves very well.

Nesta Carter gave Jamaica the expected start before Bailey-Cole took care of Mike Rodgers on the backstretch.

Ashmeade held things together on the curve, and even though USA  fumbled with Rakieem Salaam and Justin Gatlin on the final exchange, no  one could have stopped Bolt, the king of sprinting.

Congratulations to the Jamaican athletes,i think Usain Bolt would go down in history as the greatest sprinter of all time.Sorry Osafa didn't make the cut but maybe Brazil might be in the works u never know.
