Abby Steiner wins gold at World Athletics Championships in 4×100 relay

After finishing fifth in the 200-meter dash final Thursday, Abby Steiner spoke as if her season was complete.

“I’m excited to get ready for next year as a pro and be at this event as a pro without the collegiate season on my legs,” Steiner said, having just finished her 55th race of the year.

But the Dublin Coffman High School and University of Kentucky graduate was not done, joining Melissa Jefferson, Jenna Prandini and Twanisha Terry on the United States 4×100-meter relay team to win gold at the World Athletics Championships Saturday.

Steiner and company took home first place in the final in 41.14 seconds, upsetting heavily favored Jamaica by .04 seconds.
