The Bahamas has indicated they will field 10 teams, one for each event, at the World Relays, informs the IAAF.

There are 72 days to go till the inaugural event where the host nation is expected to be most strong in the 4x400m races. 

The World records most likely to be broken at Thomas A. Robinson stadium are the 4x1500m records. The men’s record of 14:36.23 is held by Kenya, while Australia holds the women’s best at 17:09.75.

At the London 2012 Olympics, the men’s US 4x400m team was overhauled by The Bahamas in a memorable race. With the expected vocal support in Nassau, The Bahamas could once again triumph over the might of the USA.

But the relays drama in recent years hasn’t just been reserved for the 4x400m.

Both 4x100m world records were broken at the London 2012 Olympics. Usain Bolt anchored Jamaica to a 36.84 clocking, while the US women ran 40.82 to smash the long-standing 41.37 that was set by East Germany in 1985.

The IAAF World Relays will have more than just the 4x100m and 4x400m, though. Also on the programme will be the 4x200m, 4x800m and 4x1500m.
