Guyana’s 4X100M relay team is into the final of the 2022 Commonwealth Games finals following a sterling performance in the first semi-final.

Guyana’s team of Emanuel Archibald, Arinze Chance, Noelex Holder, and Akeem Stewart finished third in semi-final 1 of the Men’s 4x100m relay.

Running in front of the crowd at the Alexander Stadium, the Guyanese team ran 38.92s to finish behind Trinidad and Tobago (38.84s) and England (38.48s).

Stewart’s start provided Guyana with the punch they needed from lane two, and the Guyanese looked well-oiled when the baton passed to Archibald for leg two.

National 400m Indoor Record holder Chance took over from leg three and made a textbook turn before handing it off to Holder, who didn’t miss a step to cross the line.

“It was a good effort. Everybody did what they were supposed to do, and we got the results we were hoping for,” Chance stated after the race.

Flanked by his teammates, Chance said they executed according to plan, but they will sit with coaches Johnny Gravesande and Julian Edmonds and review the race to see if changes are applicable.

However, Holder, chirping in the background, said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

The Men’s 4x100m relay team will look to the podium tomorrow at 7:40 am (GT Time).
