Great Britain will start as the team to beat and will enter the competition well under their national record of 41.55 seconds. The Netherlands will also field a strong team and could challenge their European rivals for one of the two qualifying spots for the final. Expect the Bahamas to be extra motivated against their home supporters, alongside fellow Caribbean representatives, Trinidad and Tobago and Cuba.

The first heat pits reigning world champions the USA against a tough Nigerian team, who will also be hoping to secure a spot in the championship race. This heat also includes France, Switzerland and Brazil, all of which are capable of surprising the more favored countries if they make a mistake.

Elsewhere, Olympic champions Jamaica, albeit without some of the country’s best sprinters, will start from heat two and face Poland and Canada, while heat three will feature Ivory Coast, Germany and Australia.
