World Relay Championships

Highlights of the 2017 world relays from the Bahamas, which also gives the chance for teams to qualify for 2017's world athletics championships in London.

Nick Hope presents highlights of the 2017 world relays from the Bahamas, which also gives the chance for teams to qualify for 2017's world athletics championships in London.

Great Britain have sent an impressive team, with their men's 4x100m, 4x400m and the women's 4x400m teams all looking to make at least the final, which will book them a spot in London later in the year. Leading the way for the Brits is European indoor 60m champion Richard Kilty, former world and 400m Olympic champion Christine Ohuruogu and new sensation Laivia Nielsen.

The event held in Nassau sees 500 athletes gather from all over the world, and some of the best athletes on the planet are there, including Jamaica's new sprint queen Elaine Thompson, who claimed double Olympic gold in Rio last summer, and Andre de Grasse, the Canadian sprint sensation who could well be the heir to Usain Bolt's sprint throne.
