Out of the blocks USA took the lead, passing first and building a small lead. A small lead is not adequate when Jamaica has Usain Bolt on the anchor. During the third handoff, Justin Gatlin seemed to go wide while struggling to get the baton, still in the lead while Jamaica had a smoother handoff. Once free of the technicalities, the multi gold medalist easily pulled away for the win. Great Britain finished the race in third place but were disqualified after passing the baton outside the takeover zone on the second changeover.[2][deprecated source] Canada then took the bronze.
