Gold - UNITED STATES

Allyson Felix: I felt really comfortable.
Lashinda Demus: I am happy and blessed. I was playing my part. Debbie and Allyson ret me up and gave me a good lead. But still, there was no relaxing there.
Sanya Richards: It was an amazing relay. Except for the first leg we were always leading clearly. We achieved a great time! In two years' time if the Jamaicans will want to get the 4x400m gold? Well, we will be ready.

Novlene Williams-Mills - We did an awesome job. It's nice to bring Jamaica the last medal of the championships. We have a team that just did what it had to. It feels good but we are tired.

A. Krivoshapka - I was on the last leg and I felt big responsibility for it. This race was almost the same as the individual 400 meters final - almost the same competitors, the same fast pace.The USA team was very very strong. We were hoping for medal, so we are satisfied now. I am just little bit disappointed because I took the baton as second and we finished third. But I did my best.

Rest of the team - We did what we must have done. It was quite difficult after the Olympics to keep the top shape but we are happy that we managed to get a medal. We followed the advices of our coach Maslakov and everybody gave something special to get this medal.
