Ryon Jones, Staff ReporterPENNSYLVANIA, USA:JAMAICA's sprint relay quartet sped to victory in the women's 4x100m, ending a nine-year drought against their United States rivals on yesterday's final day of action at the Penn Relays, held at the Franklin Field Stadium, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia.

The USA Blue team of Mandy White, Alexandria Anderson, Barbara Pierre and Porscha Lucas finished second in 42.65 seconds, while the USA Red quartet - Tianna Bartoletta, Allyson Felix, Bianca Knight and Jeneba Tarmoh - the only newcomer to the team that established a [color:7612=blue !important][color:7612=blue !important]new [color:7612=blue !important]world [color:7612=blue !important]record in winning at last year's Olympics (as she replaced the injured Carmelita Jeter), had to settle for third in 42.66 seconds.
