Is The Women’s Olympic 4x100 Winner Already Decided?

With just 50 days left until the 2008 Beijing Games the speculation is rampant. Who will take home gold in the women’s 4x100-meter relay? Are the Jamaican women heavily favored to win? The Jamaicans has some big names, a strong overrall squad, and maybe better chemistry. Over the last 12 months Veronica Campbell-Brown (10.88) is the most consistent 100 meter runner on the planet. The rest of the candidates are Sherone Simpson (10.94), Simon Facey (10.95), Kerron Clement (10.99), and Peta-Gaye Dowdie (11.31).

The American women relay pool has depth, depth, and more depth. Can a loaded Team U.S. hold off Jamaica and a fast-closing Veronica Campbell-Brown? The U.S. relay pool consists of: Torri Edwards (10.94), Allyson Felix (10.93), Marshavet Hooker (10.94), Muna Lee (10.97), Carmelita Jeter (11.07), Bianca Knight (11.11), Lauryn Williams (11.13), and Porscha Lucas (11.15), Sanya Richards (11.26) , and Miki Barber (11.31).

Who do you think will win the 4x100 and why?
