Setting a blistering pace, Jamaica took the gold medal in the men's 4x100 meter relay in London Saturday night, setting a new world record of 36.85 seconds in the process.
The Jamaican team, anchored by six-time gold medalist Usain Bolt, edged out the Americans, who said a national record of 37.04 seconds to take the silver medal.
The Canadian team crossed the line in third but was disqualified, which gave Trinidad & Tobago the bronze.
The win for Jamaica capped off Usain Bolt's storybook Olympic performance, winning his third medal in the London Games, after victories in the 100 meter and 200 meter races.
He has won six gold medals in the past four years and is the current world record holder at 100 meters.
