Called the world's fastest woman, helped the US track team win the 4x100 meter relay in a world-best 41.82 seconds.

Former Southern Miss track standout Tori Bowie added her second gold medal of the IAAF World Championships on Saturday at Olympic Stadium in London.

Allyson Felix, part of that winning team in Daegu, ran the second leg before passing on to Morolake Akinosun who handed the baton to Bowie, the 100m world champion. Britain took silver medal and Jamaica earned bronze.

For Great Britain, the quartet of Asha Philip, Desiree Henry, Dina Asher-Smith and Daryll Neita came home in 42.12 seconds as the United States claimed gold in a world-leading 41.82secs.

One particular thing to note is that this medal makes Allyson Felix the most decorated athlete in World Championship history; her 15 medals put her one ahead of fellow all-time greats Merlene Ottey and Usain Bolt.
