The second edition of IAAF World Relays is planned for 2015, again in Nassau, but for an earlier date May 2-3.
Last weekend's inaugural event was a huge success according to the IAAF.
“The IAAF’s faith in the innovative IAAF World Relays, a new event with a new presentation concept and The Bahamas ability to deliver a top global sports entertainment product have been richly rewarded this weekend,” said IAAF President Lamine Diack.
“In the ‘sun, sea and sand paradise’ that The Bahamas markets itself, we have experienced a true sporting paradise which has excelled beyond our expectations. The people have embraced the IAAF World Relays and the noise of their support will be left ringing in our memories for many years to come.”
Meanwhile, the new event proved to be a success with 3 world records and world leads in all 10 events. 13 countries got medals with USA the best 5-2-1 ahead of Kenya 3-1-0 and Jamaica 2-2-1.
Golden baton for the best team given by president Lamine Diack to USA.
