The men's 4x400m (USA vs World) on Saturday (26) highlighted the 2014 Penn Relays with an interesting competition and with a controversial  boton exchange between 3rd and 4th leg.

So this is what happened...

USA's  David Verburg and Bahamas' Chris Brown comes into to final exchange shoulder

to shoulder.


It Happens that both teams have to do cross exchange.

And from here things get interesting wrong...

 

The American Manteo Mitchell thinks he got the boton from his teammate and so does Bahamian  Ramon Miller.

 Both athletes take off holding hands on the same stick.
