The Kenyan quartet of Mercy Cherono, Faith Kipyegon, Irene Jelagat and Hellen Obiri set a world record for the 4x1500m relay at the IAAF World Relays in Nassau on Saturday.

The Kenyans clocked 16min 33.58sec for gold, smashing the previous mark of 17:05.72 set by Kenya in Nairobi last month.

US silver medal-winning team timed 16:55.33 for a new American record, while Australia took bronze in 17:08.65, also a record for the country.

Kenya won the meet’s first two finals, the men’s 4x800m and the women’s 4x1500m, the latter shattering the world record by 32 seconds.

The men prevailed despite being without Olympic gold medalist David Rudisha, the Olympic bronze medalist and its fastest 800m runner this year. The Kenyans clocked 7:08.40, nearly six seconds off the world record (set by Kenya in 2006).
