Bahaman Relay Team Earns Final - without Andretti

Recommended Posts

The Bahamas finished with the second best 4X400 relay time, advancing to Saturday's final, but Andretti Bain was not on the relay team for the heat.  Don't know if there's an injury or something else, or if it's just the normal practice of a relay team to include different team members in the initial round of qualifying.  I would certainly hate to see Andretti miss out on this excellent chance to earn an Olympic medal.

Not saying this is the case with the Bahamas, but it fairly common to change runners for the finals of a relay. Doesn't make sense to me - unless they think fresh legs will give them an edge. The US regularly does this.... of course, that worked really well this Olympics... :-o
