That was an awesome race! Couldn't tell who won until the replays were checked.

Nice to see Yang Chunhan being described as representing Taiwan, rather than Chinese Taipei.

Awesome race. Yang Chunhan probably dived too early whereas Koike's 'lean' across the finish line was just perfect (or at least pretty good, could have pushed his chest/shoulders a tad earlier imo)

4x100m relay finals tonight! Kin medallleuuu!

@JonathanJo, you must have had a different view of 'the crowds'; from the picture, it appears almost no one is there.

It makes a huge difference to athletes if they are performing in front of a packed and excited stadium. I just hope there were some people cheering them on out of shot near the finish line. After all the effort preparing for these events, they deserve a big hand.

They both finished at the same time 20.23".
