Tyson Gay, one of America’s most successful track athletes, has posted two mixed 4x100m relay teams and is challenging the track and field world to select the best.

Gay posted a photo of himself, English Gardner, Carmelita Jeter and Justin Gatlin on the All-Decade Mixed 4x100m American team.

In the other lane, Gay named Usain Bolt, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Elaine Thompson and Yohan Blake.

A fan asked in the comment section about Marion Jones, who won three gold medals and two bronze medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia, but was later stripped of her medals after admitting to steroid use.
“Why not Marion Jones I mean she ran 10.65 and don’t say cause she was a drug cheat because so was yall,” aaliyah1xt asked?

Butnerdonnell is also not happy with the USA team. “I Would Take English Gardner out and put Allyson Felix in her place. Felix is the best female relay sprinter of all time.”

davidwashtrains said: “Jamaica should have Merlene Ottey in there …just saying, A real.G.O.A.T.”

“Which team wins,” was the question over the photo.

Ccopeland724: “I’m sad to say @tysonlgay 🇺🇸I think it goes to Jamaica 🇯🇲 … Both breaking the current world record.. @usainbolt is the difference
Byesamaan “US always brings it, but I can’t choose against 🇯🇲 😬👏🏿🙏🏿😍❤️”
Champange__papi_cass22: “Sorry Tyson but I have bolts crew.”

  1. On paper Jamaica wins by 0.14 seconds. Jamaica runs 40.67 and USA 40.81. However in reality, Jamaica would run around 38.10 and USA would panic and drop the bottan.

  2. Wonder why you choose Blake over Asafa….thought that would make you win? Sorry bro, hands down it’s a Jamaican race.

  3. Marion Jones and Torie Bowie before Allyson Felix.

    The line up should be

    Marion Jones, Caremelita Jeter, Tyson Gay and Justin Gatlin

    Back up English Gardner, Torie Bowie, Christian Coleman, Noah Lyles

    Usain Bolt, Asafa Powell, Shelley Anne Fraser and Merlene Ottey

    Back up Yohan Blake, Nesta. Carter, Veronica Campbell Brown and Elaine Thompson.

  4. The US need to replace English with Allyson or Torrie then it will be more interesting. But islanders will win ….

  5. Depends, if the rule is, same sex on the the same legs, then Jamaica is the winner but if they mix the legs, American might have a chance!

  6. English Gardner for Marion Jones. People forget how much of a beast she was. Later…controversy. But early on just a beast

  7. On the women side Marion Jones both relays 1/2/4 straight beast call it what u want to just no none of the other girls could run the 400 and wouldn’t be close after 250 meters those are facts the guys it’s only two legs I go with my boy Gatlin/Tyson and they would win the 4×4 USA cause USA build 400 meters runners

  8. My line will be Blessed to mommy rocket to ET to Legend reason Gatlin is not going anchor if Legend is there so it will be either Tyson or Camileta do you think Gatlin cut into lead yes he will make it competitive ET kill CJ then ask Tyson to carry water in basket

  9. Marion Jones and Jeter are like for like none of them great starters so she comes in only if Jetter on anchor is injured and virtue of the great PB Jetter stays, Marion on the bench…
    In the case of Jamaica. If we want to win then sorry Merlene….. good curve runner but all the ones there are better than you are. No offend Ottey. You sit on the bench too plus if a replacement was needed it would definitely be VCB. Great foot speed and great curve runner.

    • Kadian Jones nuh matter who runs more leg…..on paper..on field…on grass…in the sea..under the sea….Jamaica kill dem every day all day….if it’s a 1000 race…Jamaica win 1000…simple
