U.S. Sets New Women's American U20 Record In The 4x100

MAYAGUEZ, PR -- Dominance took on new form on Saturday during the women's 4x100 final at the Pan American U20 Championships inside Jose Figueroa Stadium. 

It wasn't even close. The U.S. left the field in the dust. 

Few could argue anything else after the American contingent of Kaila Jackson, Camryn Dickson, Avery Lewis and Shawnti Jackson loaded up on the 4x100 and blew past the field, clocking a new American U20 record of 42.88 seconds. 

The performance finished up Day 2 of the competition, which saw six more U.S. wins.

"All of us really trusted us and we really came together and we really wanted this, so we went out and did it," Dickson said. 

Jamaica was over two seconds back in 45.23 seconds, while Canada was third in 46.15 and Puerto Rico was fourth in 46.18. 

"Go USA, guys," Jackson said. "I love you guys." 

Doubly impressive was the fact that the American team surpassed the former record of 43.29, which had stood since 2006 after it fielded the likes of Bianca Knight, Jeneba Tarmoh, Elizabeth Olear and Gabby Mayo.
