BERLIN. Superstar Usain Bolt replicated his Olympic gold medal tally here at the world championships on Saturday when Jamaica won the men's 4x100 metres relay title. The Jamaican quartet, with 100m and 200m world champion Bolt running the penultimate leg, timed a championship record of 37.31 seconds while Trinidad and Tobago took silver in a national record of 37.62 sec and Great Britain the bronze in 38.02 sec.

NEW YORK. As Tim Tebow and the Florida Gators prepare to make a run at their third national title in the last four seasons, the defending champions have already made some history. Florida is No. 1 in The Associated Press' preseason Top 25 released Saturday, followed by Texas, Oklahoma, Southern California and Alabama. But the Gators are in a class by themselves, the most overwhelming preseason No. 1 in the history of the media poll. Florida received 58 of the 60 first-place votes, or 96.7 percent. Texas got the other first-place votes.

BERLIN. Olympic champions Jamaica added the world 4x100m relay title to their impressive haul of sprint medals as 100m champion Shelly-Ann Fraser led the women's team to victory at the World Athletics Championships on Saturday. The Jamaican quartet ran 42.06sec to take gold ahead of the Bahamas, who ran their season's best 42.29sec, while Germany pulled off a surprise to claim third in 42.87sec. Third-leg Aleen Bailey said her delight was both personal and for her country.

ROME. Brazilians Pato and Ronaldinho proved there is life after Kaka as they inspired AC Milan to a 2-1 victory at Siena in coach Leonardo's opening Serie A match in charge of the Italian giants on Saturday. Pato scored a brace but it was his Brazilian compatriot Ronaldinho who created both goals to help countryman Leonardo begin his reign with a win and instantly ease the pain felt by Kaka's switch to Real Madrid.

BILOXI. Roy Jones Jr. toyed with the crowd and with Jeff Lacy, stopping the overmatched opponent after the 10th round Saturday night to retain the NABO light heavyweight championship title. Jones used a left hook to cut Lacy's right eye in the third round. Lacy didn't answer the bell for the 11th round and the referee stopped the bout.
