With no East Germany and no Soviet Union, the United States was the favorite over the remnant of the USSR – the Unified Team, but also highly considered were the 1991 World Champions, Jamaica. In the final, [Juliet Cuthbert], running the second leg for Jamaica, pulled a hamstring and they were out of the race. EUN anchor runner [Irina Privalova] took the baton one metre ahead of American [Gwen Torrence] but Torrence pulled ahead to give the US a very close victory.
