The event will consist of nine events: the 4x100m, 4x200m and 4x400m for both men and women, and a mixed 4x400m, shuttle hurdle relay and a 2x2x400m relay. The relays will take place on May 11-12 at the Yokohama International Stadium in Yokohama Stadium.

Cam will be at the Penn Relays this weekend:
“I want to add to the family legacy,” he said Friday at a news conference with four of his USA vs. the World teammates. “I’m very, very privileged to have a family who has done a lot in this sport between my father, my mother, my aunt. So my biggest motivation is just to add to that legacy.”
Leroy Burrell, his coach with the Cougars, enjoyed a spectacular career at Penn Wood High School and Houston. He still holds the Penn Relays record for the college 100, 10.10 seconds. He later went on to hold the 100-meter world record twice, 9.90 in 1991, and 9.85 on July 6, 1994 in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Great last leg run by CB to edge out the Jamaican’s for the bronze.
Saw that he’s contemplating running this weekend at the meet here to prep for Yokohama.
Cam was hauling at the end:
USA 4x100, anchored by Cam Burrell, with the 4th fastest time in prelims. Cam pulled away from China, and was able to shut it down before the finish line.
I also watched the first 2x2x400m mixed relay (men & women). Interesting format, I liked it. One man & one woman for each team; they alternate laps, so each runner runs two 400m races. Most teams started with the woman, but a couple started with the men. Made for a very interesting finish.
The website below says the relays are broadcast live on YouTube. I found the races by searching YouTube.
