LONDON, England (AP) – Tori Bowie became the first double gold medalist at the world championships, anchoring the U.S. team to the 4×100-meter relay title ahead of Britain and Jamaica.

At the same time, Allyson Felix, running the second leg on the winning team, earned a record 15th medal at the world championships in a career going back to 2005.

Bowie, who won the 100 meters this week, ran a strong anchor leg, leaving behind the opposition to finish in 41.82 seconds.

Britain took silver in 42.12 and two-time defending champion Jamaica earned bronze in 42.19.
