KINGSTON, Jamaica – After a less than impressive day eight at the 2017 IAAF World Championships, Jamaicans remain hopeful that more medals can be added to the tally today.

Sprint superstar Usain Bolt will be a part of Jamaica's starting line-up in the qualification round of the men's 4x100m relays where he is set to anchor. Tyquendo Tracey, Julian Forte and Michael Campbell also make up the team for the qualification round.

Also in action will be the female quartet for the 4x100m, and 4x400m as well as the men quartet for the 4x400m. The names of the athletes comprising each quartet are yet to be announced.
