This was the most amazing relay leg I’ve ever seen. Guei of France was back in 6th place, and she kicked it with about 200 to go to take Gold for France!
The amazing thing is, at these European Championships, she only got to the semi-final of the individual 400m with a SB’s of 51.62. But in the relay, she gutted it out, and ran a relay split of 49.71.
That’s how you run a relay.
