Machel Ce­de­nio ran the race of his life as T&T's 4x400 me­tres re­lay team won the gold medal at the IAAF World Re­lays in Yoko­hama, Japan, Sun­day.

The oth­er mem­bers of the quar­tet were De­on Lendore, Asa Gue­vara and Jereem Richards.

In sim­i­lar fash­ion to the World Cham­pi­onships two years ago, the Amer­i­cans were lead­ing by quite a dis­tance be­fore Ce­de­nio pressed the gas in an epic fin­ish for a world-lead­ing time this year of three min­utes, point 81 sec­onds (3:00.81).

He just man­aged to edge out Amer­i­can an­chor­man Paul Dede­wo, who fell at the fin­ish. The Amer­i­cans were lat­er dis­qual­i­fied any­way for a lane in­fringe­ment.
