Carl Lewis rips U.S. men's 4x100-meter relay team after failing to make final: 'Worse than the AAU kids I saw'
Nine-time Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis defeated the US men's 4 x 100 meter relay after finishing sixth in the run-up and failing to reach the final.
Trayvon Bromell, Fred Kerley, Ronnie Baker and Crayvon Gillespie crossed the finish line with a time of 38.10 seconds, 0.02 less than Ghana, which reached the final.
In this heat, China finished first, followed by Canada, Italy and Germany.
The US has not won gold at this event since the 2000 Sydney Games.
"The USA team did everything wrong in the men's season," Lewis said on social media. "The passing system is wrong, the athletes are walking the wrong legs, and it was clear there was no leadership. It was totally embarrassing and totally unacceptable for a US team to look worse than the AAU kids I saw. "
