Their only loss came in the men's 4x100m, as Jamaica topped the race in 38.70 (Jermaine Hamilton, Julian Forte, Rasheed Dwyer and Oshane Bailey). US Red with Mike Rodgers, Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Isiah Young were disqualified after crossing the line in 39.74.

Jamaica did not finish as Jason Livermore, on lead off,  pulled up.
