The quartet of Usain Bolt on anchor, Yohan Blake on third leg, Michael Frater on second leg and Nesta Carter on the first leg, clocked 36.84 seconds to break the old mark of 37.04 set by Jamaica in Daegu in 2011.
Last night on USTREAM, Bolt had said the team was eying a sub 37.00 clocking.
From the very start, Jamaica was ahead of the field, and with smooth changes decimated the field.
In 2008, Jamaica had set a new Olympic record of 37.10 in the men’s 4X100m relay.
United States was second in a national record of 37.04.
Canada was originally placed third in 38.07 but were later disqualified.
Trinidad and Tobago was then awarded third in 38.12.
Jamaica has ended the 2012 London Olympics with 12 medals.
