You mean a 4x400m relay? Basically it means that you have four people in a relay, and each person runs 400 meters once. :)
100m - 9.34secs 200m - 19.19secs in the 4x400m/100m relay they set a world record but i dunno what it is sorry
well normally it takes 44 seconds on an average for 1 of them to do it. So it would be: 44x4=176 seconds=3 minutes and 33 seconds (aprox)
The mile relay is another way of saying the 1600m relay or 4x400m relay. This event involves 4 runners each running and handing off a baton after completing 400m

The baton is used in relay races; 4x100m, 4x400m, etc, exchange is very important because if dropped, that team is automatically disqualified. Also if a team member steps out of their lines during the exchange they are disqualified. Futherore mastering a quick exchange is key to a faster time.
A 30-member team of athletes was named by the T&T Olympic Committee (TTOC) to represent T&T at 2008 Beijing Olympics set for August 8-24, at the Jean Pierre Complex, Port of Spain on Thursday evening. The team which is the 15th contingent to represent T&T at the Olympics, consist of 25 track and field representatives, three swimmers and one representative from shooting and table tennis each. All hoping to in some way to forever write their names into to our countries history book by increasing our medal tally which currently stands at 12 (one gold, three silver and eight bronze medals). Following in the footsteps of those who went before them such as T&T first Olympian George Lewis, who competed in the 100 and 200 metre sprints and Rodney Wilkes T&T first medalist at the Olympic Games taking silver in weightlifting, both feats being competed on T&T's first appearance at the Olympic Games in 1948 in London, England where we were represented in three Sports. Hoping to build T&T rich legacy at the Games in the 100m sprinters are the trio of Richard Thompson, Marc Burns and Darrel Brown. T&T having won a total of three medals in the history of the games in this event starting with Hasley Crawford, who in 1976 won T&T first and only Olympic gold medal while Ato Boldon took silver in the 100m in Sydney 2000 and bronze in Atlanta 1996. Boldon's legacy of appearing at three Olympics will also haunt Thompson, Aaron Armstrong and Rondell Sorillo in the 200m as he in addition to his medals in the 100m, has taken bronze twice in the 200m at Sydney and Atlanta. The names of Edwin Roberts, Edwin Skinner, Kent Bernard and Wendell Mottley represent the only relay for T&T to ever win a medal at the Olympics. They completed this feat at the 1964 Games in Tokyo, Japan, where they took bronze in the final 4x400m. The 1964 Games are still considered by many to be T&T most successfully run at the Olympics having won three medals. The others being Mottley's silver in the 400m and Skinner's bronze in the 200m. The names of the quartermilers have changed but the quality has remained the same as both Renny Quow and Ato Stephens are in fine form this season with Quow on Saturday registering a new personnel best of 44.89 at the Ciutat de Barcelona track and field meet, in Barcelona, Spain. Quow and Stephens will also lead the charge in the 4x400m relay with Stan Waithe, Zwede Hewitt, Cowin Mills and Jovon Toppin. No female Olympian has ever stepped on the podium for T&T at the Games, however the with the likes of Candice Scott, Kelly-Ann Baptiste and Cleopatra Borel-Brown among the female representatives this time around there is no doubt that atleast one of them could write their names on those blank pages of history. Scott, a gold medalist and new championship record holder at recently concluded Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Cali, Colombia will compete in her second Olympics. While Baptiste, T&T's fastest ever female and holder of the national records in both 100m and 200m, will be on debut. Baptiste along with Semoy Hackett, Sasha Springer-Jones will compete in the 100m and the 4x100m events. Borel-Brown, the reigning national shot put champion also promises much after placing 10th at the 28th Olympics Games and winning a bronze medal in the 2007 Pan American. CAC gold medalist in the women 400m hurdles, Josanne Lucas and long jumper Rhonda Watkins, are also on the team hoping to do T&T proud. Goerge Bovell III, T&T only medalist at the 2004 Games, along with his young bother Nicholas and Sharntelle Mc Lean will look, to again, show the strength of swimming. Wild card recipient Roger Daniel will also compete in his second Olympics Games. T&T long time table tennis representative Dexter St Louis will compete in his first Olympics. St Louis won qualification for the Olympics during the Olympic qualifier which took place in Dominican Republic, earlier this year.
