Athletics Women’s 4 x 100m Relay Final Full Replay from the Olympic Stadium at the London 2012 Olympic Games. — 10 August 2012

Since 1896, athletics has been on the programme of each edition of the Games of the Olympiad. Its presence on the Games programme has allowed its popularity to increase across the world. This popularity was also strengthened by the creation of the IAAF in 1912. Women’s events appeared for the first time at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, while the men’s programme was standardised as of the 1932 Games in Los Angeles. Although at the beginning women were authorised to participate in only some events, today their programme is almost identical to that of the men.

So America, Baby of London or Babylon, Abraham's seed is being commemorated via H.R. 1242 which is deceptively recognizing 400 years of African-American history in America but is in fact recognizing that Negroes in America are the children of Israel and this has been proven by much documented evidence.

  3. The 27-year-old's record of 41.37s by GDR is finally getting rid of, it's amazing !!! 40.82s new record by USA, amazing … fast run with great quality … what to say about this.? congratulations FOR YOU … maybe this record will last longer? wait and see, great …

  5. Can someone explain why Felix doesn’t run a bend leg, but rather a straightaway? Having a 200/400 background would make her a better bend runner right?
