A 4x800 relay race is a special kind of race where a team of four players participate together to finish the race. Each player has to run a distance of 800 meters and the team finishing the race first wins. The earlier record for the fastest 4x800 relay was held by the Russian team (8:06:50 mins) and was achieved in the year 2011. This team comprised of Ajee Wilson, Crishuna Williams, Raevyn Rogers and Charlene Lipsey. After the race was over, Wilson was interviewed who said that they had discussed the plan to break the work record and she was very happy that they achieved it.
