Rio de Janeiro, Aug 1 : After 45 days of closed training in the US, the Chinese men’s 4x100m relay team arrived in Rio De Janeiro, aiming to make history by entering the fil at the Olympic Games. Last summer, the Chinese men’s relay team surprised the world on its home soil as it clocked 38.01 seconds to take the silver medal at the 2015 IAAF World Championships in Beijing. Chi has never reached the Olympic fil of men’s 4x100m relay. But now the “Fantastic Four” — former Youth Olympic 200m gold medallist Xie Zhenye, former world 100m youth champion Mo Youxue, Zhang Peimeng as well as Su Bingtian, the first ever Chinese to ever dip under the 10-second barrier — are ready to rewrite the history.
