Backdoor bronze medal

well the 4x400m is no different here as the Nigerians men and women teams underachived once again. Alas, the Bahamas men dropped the baton again! The men - Former Olympics silver and bronze medallists ended up fifth, having being second with about 90 metres to go.

Good news for Africa, South Africa men picked the silver medal behind an impressive Australian team but the SA women has been disqualified along with England for standing in a wrong lane to receive the baton.

Wait a minute, the Nigerian women have been elevated to the bronze medal position, despite having the worst performance by a Nigerian relay team in a long time.

Now, where does Africa go from here!
