Doha: Dalilah Muhammad bagged her second gold medal of the World Championships on Sunday as the United States cruised to victory in the women's 4x400m relay. Muhammad, who set a world record en route to her 400m hurdles gold on Friday, ran a blistering third leg for the USA who won in a time of 3min 18.92sec. Poland took silver in 3:21.89 while Jamaica pipped Great Britain for bronze in 3:22.37.

The USA victory also sees Allyson Felix extend her record tally of world championship gold medals. The 33-year-old American, who did not run in the final but featured in the early rounds, now has 13 gold medals.

Meanwhile, sprint hurdler Nia Ali led a final day gold rush for the United States as the curtain came down on the World Championships on Sunday. Ali powered to victory in the 100 metres hurdles to upset world record holder Keni Harrison with a time of 12.34sec at the Khalifa Stadium. "I've been training really hard, especially coming back from having my kids," said mother-of-two Ali, 30, who was accompanied by both of her children on her lap of honour.

"These ladies have been raising the bar all year so I knew what I had to do."

Ali's win was one of three final day gold medals for the USA, who finished on top of the medal table with 14 golds, 11 silver and four bronze. Kenya, meanwhile, finished in second spot with five golds, two silvers and four bronze.
