BEIJING, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Chinese male runners Saturday broke into the world championships 4x100m relay final after 28 year and set an Asian record.

In the 4x100m heats, the Chinese relay team, consisting of Su Bingtian, Zhang Peimeng, Xie Zhenye and Mo Youxue, finished fourth in 37.92 seconds, shaving 0.07 off their previous Asian best set in the Asian Games last year, to qualify for the world championships final for the first time.

Defending champion Jamaica was first in the heats in 37.41 while France, the United States, Antigua &Barbuda, Canada, Britain and Germany entered this evening's final.

In 2013 Moscow world championships, China finished a distant 16th in the heats. Last time a Chinese team appeared in the final was in 1987 in Rome, Italy when they finished eighth in 39.93 and the United States took gold in 37.90.

"The atmosphere here in the stadium was great today and that helped us to perfom as well as we did," said Zhang who ran the 4th leg.

Su, who became the first Chinese to run the blue-ribbon 100m final at the world championships on Sunday, believed they could do even better in the final.

"I think our team performed overall was good but there is still room for improvement. So hopefully in the final we can give a better performance and it should be possible to be stronger in the evening," said the 26-year-old.

China's Fantastic 4 take historic silver in 4x100m

The Chinese men's relay team worked miracle on Saturday evening when they captured a historic 4x100m relay silver medal.

The team became the very superstars of the Bird's Nest Stadium, stealing much of the thunder of Jamaica which defended the title in 37.36 seconds with Usain Bolt running the last leg.

When the Chinese sprinters celebrated their unprecedented bronze medal after a 38.01-second finish, they found themselves promoted to second place as the United States was disqualified for exchanging the baton out of zone. Canada was lifted to third in 38.13.

Led by two of the fastest men in Asia - Su Bingtian and Zhang Peimeng, the Chinese quartet started on the ninth lane. Mo Youxue and Xie Zhenye kept pace with the other teams while birthday boy Su improved their position to fourth in the third leg. Zhang edged past Canada's J. Warner in the final meters.

As they did a lap of honor, Su, turning 26 Saturday, was greeted with a happy birthday chorus by the capacity National Stadium.

"This is the moment of life. Can you imagine that 80,000 people sang birthday song to me?" said Su, the first Chinese to reach the world men's 100m final and clock 9.99 seconds.

"I had never thought of winning a silver medal. I told my teammates that we should be just as relaxed in the final as in training because we already made history by reaching the final."

"We have been training very hard to make four people as one. We practiced baton exchange every day since this May," he added.

Zhang, previous national record holder, anchored China's charge to the podium.

"I went all out. We made history," he said.

"I was under huge pressure when I took the baton from Su Bingtian. I felt like we were closer to a medal and I surely did not want to be the one who squandered our opportunity."

The good sign already emerged in the morning heats where China finished fourth overall in 37.92 seconds, shaving 0.07 off their previous Asian best set in last year's Asian Games. Last time a Chinese team appeared in the final was in 1987 in Rome where they finished eighth in 39.93.

China's silver finish was watched by former Olympic and world 110m hurdles champion Liu Xiang.

"I am so happy for them. They created history," said China's most famous athlete who retired early this year. "I know they have been working extremely hard and they brought out every bit of their potential. They deserved what they won."

Thank you. But I believe that in the future China will dominate Athletics. China and America will be vying for number 1 spot. Will raise the Chinese flag myself.

Thank you for your trust in China but we still have many kilometers to go before we are in the same league as the Jamaicans and other countries which are traditional powerhouses in track and field!
