“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.

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.
