02:15 WOMEN'S 4x 100M RELAY FINAL

You don't have to be a genius to figure out which two countries will be battling it out for gold in both the men's and women's 4x100 metre relays in Rio. However, in the women Jamaica isn't quite as superior as in the men, as they've only managed one Olympic gold, which came in 2004 in Athens. For example, the United States took gold four years ago in London right in front of their noses. However, in the world championships USA have had to surrender to the Jamaicans twice in a row.

The women's 100m individual final featured three of Jamaica's relay team, and as both gold and bronze went to the small island, they have to also be considered favourites in the relay. The battle for gold is going to be intense, and USA's women did break the world record in the last games in London. It wouldn't be a surprise if that record was broken again in Rio.

Other medal candidates are last year's world championships third Trinidad & Tobago, who were also present at the London 2012 Olympic final. However, that time out they messed up in the changes and flopped. Dafne Schippers' Holland are also going to be strong, and their time they took gold with in the European Championships earlier in the summer (42.04) is exactly the time required for bronze in the last Olympics. 

Great Britain took a world championships bronze medal in 2013, whereas they have gone 32 years without an Olympic medal in this event. Germany came fifth in both the last Olympics and world championships, and if other teams mess up they could be in with a shot.

EDIT: Holland messed up their changes and didn't make the final. The battle for gold is completely between the USA and Jamaica. Great Britain are favourites to take bronze, as their team is more consistent compared to the likes of Trinidad & Tobago.

02:35 MEN'S 4X100M RELAY FINAL

 

The men's 4x100m relays have been controlled by Jamaica in recent years, as they have taken gold in both the last two Olympics and four world championships in a row. Camp USA hasn't had much to cheer for in recent years, as they were disqualified in last year's world championships due to a fault in their change. Four years ago their Olympic silver medal was taken from them due to Tyson Gay's doping scandal. Without any hitches or surprises these two countries will yet again fight for gold, and Usain Bolt may yet again prove the difference between the teams.

The battle for bronze looks to be a far more tightly fought contest. Bronze medalist in two world championships in a row, Canada have yet again assembled a respectable team with Olympic medalist Andre de Grasse at the helm. Canada also cam third in the London Olympics, but ended up being disqualified as they went on a competitor's lane. Great Britain took gold in this event at Athens 2004, but after that they haven't won a medal. Even their last world championships medal is as far as seven years ago. Despite this, the Brits shouldn't be discounted from the battle for medals.

China were the huge surprise of last year's world championships, taking silver following USA's disqualification. France are a likely top-5 team in Rio with Jimmy Vicaut and Christophe Lemaitre in their team, but reaching the podium would be a huge surprise - especially if no one gets disqualified or messes up their changes.

EDIT: France failed miserably in the heats and failed to make the final. Without a massive fail by USA or Jamaica Great Britain looks like the most likely bronze medalist, with Canada their main competitor. Japan had the second fastest time in the heats, and might just be able to spring a surprise. Meanwhile, China came only a tenth of a second behind their Asian rivals.
