Men 4x400m relay

After a tremendous duel with a determined Polish quartet, the USA team set a world record of 3:02.83 to win the last track event of the championships. But it needed a superb effort from the American anchor leg runner Milton Campbell to seal gold as Piotr Mackowiak pushed him all the way to the line. The Poles were rewarded with a European record of 3:03.01 and the next two finishers -Britain and Jamaica also broke national records with 3:03.20 and 3:05.13.
