Jeshua Anderson anchors Team USA to victory at World Juniors...

Washington State freshman Jeshua Anderson anchored Team USA to victory in the men's 4 x 400 meter relay at the IAAF World Junior Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland.

Anderson teamed with Marcus Boyd, Bryan Miller, and O'Neal Wilder, as the American foursome ran a world junior leading time of 3:03.86.

This is Anderson's second gold medal earned at the world junior championship, as he won the 400 meter hurdles on Friday, running 48.68.

During the first three legs of the relay, Great Britain and Germany were in contention, but Mississippi State's O'Neal Wilder's split time of 45.4 seconds, and WSU's Anderson's split time of 46.1 seconds, completed the work put in by the first two legs by Baylor's Marcus Boyd (45.7) and Texas A&M' s Bryan Miller (46.7).

Afterwards, he told USA Track & Field, "I just wanted to stay relaxed on the anchor leg and keep the lead so we could bring home some medals. I was still a little too tight from the 400 hurdles."
