Shaunae Miller of the Bahamas won the women's 400m final with a time of 49.44, diving at the line to finish ahead of American Allyson Felix (49.51) and Jamaica's Shericka Jackson (49.85).

In the women's 400m hurdles heats, Jamaicans Ristanna Tracey (54.88 ), Leah Nugent (55.66) and Janieve Russell (56.13) all advanced, along with Janielle Bellille of Trinidad (56.25). Those not advancing were Tia-Adana Belle of Barbados (56.68 ) and Trinidadian Sparkle McKnight (56.80).

The rain played havoc with the 110m hurdles, with the first two heats being severely disrupted by torrential rain. As a result, Jamaican Deuce Carter, who crashed out in the second heat, was one of eight hurdlers given the chance to run another race, and he took his second chance clock a time that saw him advance to the semi-finals.

Among those advancing to the semis were Jamaicans Omar McLeod (13.27), Deuce Carter (13.51) and Andrew Riley (13.52), but those going out were Mikel Thomas (TT) 13.68, Eddie Lovett (USVI) 13.77, and Ronald Forbes (Cay) 14.67.

At the risk of repeating myself...Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt did it again! He won his ninth, and possibly his last, Olympic gold medal, when he anchored the Jamaica team to a convincing time in the men's sprint relay, winning in 37.27, ahead of Japan (37.60), and Canada (37.64). The United States and Trinidad were disqualified.

The United States won the women's 4x100m relay after being controversially reinstated following a time trial, clocking 41.01. Jamaica took silver in 41.36, and Britain bronze in 41.77. Trinidad were fifth in 42.12.

Jamaica led the qualifiers advancing to the final of the men's mile relay, clocking 2:58.29. Bahamas also advanced with 2:59.64, but Trinidad were disqualified from this race too. Jamaica also advanced to the final of the women's 4x400m final, with a clocking of 3:22.38.

There were silver medals for Jamaica in both mile relays. The men's 4x400m was won by the United States in 2:57.30, ahead of Jamaica (2:58.16), and Bahamas (2:58.49). The women's 4x400m relay was won by USA in 3:19.06, ahead of Jamaica (3:20.34), and Britain 3:25.88.

Levern Spencer of St Lucia finished sixth in the women's high jump with a leap of 1.93.
