LONDON, ENGLAND -

Tori Bowie added another gold medal to her name at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London.

The Southern Miss alum anchored the United States' 4x100-meter relay team, as the Americans beat out Great Britain with a time of 41.82 seconds. It's the first time since 2011 that Team USA won the women's 4x100m relay at the World Championships.

Bowie, a native of Sand Hill, will bring home two gold medals from London after becoming the first American woman since 2005 to win the 100 meters last Sunday.
