The United States made amends for their unhappy 4x100m appearances by retaining both men's and women's world titles in the 4x400 metre relays on the final day of the world championships in Berlin.

World and Olympic 400 metre champion LaShawn Merritt teamed up with rival and silver medalist Jeremy Wariner to breeze to victory in the men's 4x400 relay with the year's best time of two minutes 57.86 seconds.
