Coming from the gun, Nigeria's Olabisi Afolabi was the first to break from the stagger formation in lane 3, gaining on Australia's Nova Peris-Kneebone to her outside. After the first half lap, Afolabi began to pay for her enthusiasm, tying up through the second turn where American Jearl Miles Clark and then Jamaican Sandie Richards began to assert themselves. The Jamaican's handed off slightly ahead of the Americans, but Monique Hennagan ran a strong turn to give the Americans the edge ahead of Catherine Scott, with the rest of the world, led by Nigeria and Australia, five metres back. Scott kept the gap less than a metre all the way to the home stretch, then moved into lane two to sprint for home, passing off to 400 hurdles silver medalist Deon Hemmings just ahead of Marion Jones. But Hemmings did not charge out ahead, instead allowing Jones to secure the baton and still hold the inside of the turn. Narrowing the gap, Nigeria, Australia, Great Britain and Russia were all just a few metres back. Jones almost casually built up a five metre gap in the first three quarters of a lap, then she accelerated away to give the USA a twelve metre advantage by the handoff. Hemmings held second place to that same straightaway, but a late rush on the outside by
had Russia handing off in second place. This time Lorraine Graham held the position through the turn, forcing Irina Privalova to run the outside. With no competitors near her, LaTasha Colander expanded the American lead to almost 20 metres with 100 metres to go before slowing markedly going into the finish, jogging across the line with a 5 metre gap. Graham held off Privalova for the entire last lap. Cathy Freeman made a heroic effort to pull Australia back into fourth position, but let off the gas just before the line and was pipped by Falilat Ogunkoya. Australia's time was good enough for the Oceanian record, beating the record they set in the qualifying round.
