This after the mile relay team of Fitzroy Dunkley, Nathon Allen, Peter Matthews and Javon Francis, finished second in 2:58.16 in the final of the men's 4x400m relay, the final track and field event of the Games.

It is the fourth fastest time by a Jamaica quartet.

The team secured the medal thanks to a superb last leg by Francis, the former Calabar High School star who overtook the runners from The Bahamas and Botswana.

The United States won the gold while The Bahamas stayed on for the bronze.

Jamaica has finished the Games with a total of eleven medals: six gold, three silver and two bronze.
