11, 2016, in San Francisco, Calif. Mays was part of a three-person look at this now team that won the Code4Hillary competition in San Francisco. (Aric Crabb/Bay Area News Group) “She’s just crushing rapid response,” Harris said. “I think she understands how to use the platform.” But it was Sanders’ team that had done the best work, he said. Not only had the Vermont senator built a massive database of supporters that he could quickly mobilize, but his team also embraced the volunteer work of supporters, such as the now iconic image of Sanders’ white hair and black glasses that made its way onto thousands of campaign T-shirts. “If Bernie had won the nomination, his team would have a knockout post pushed beyond what Obama did in 2012,” Harris said. Clinton’s campaign, he added, is just too insular to do that. Carla Mays, a San Francisco-based technology consultant, said she got a taste of the campaign’s coolness to outsiders after her team won April’s “Code for Hillary” hackathon with a proposed app to help voters stuck in long lines at polling stations. “To win the hackathon and then be ignored like that,” Mays said. “It was like, ‘What the hell?’ ” In response, Clinton read this campaign officials said that the hackathon’s purpose was to give tech volunteers a space to meet and collaborate, not necessarily to produce a finished product.

Reigning 400m world champion Felix, 30, took home the baton on the final leg to cross in 3min 19.06sec. Jamaica took silver in 3:20.34 with Britain claiming bronze in 3:25.88. The win marks a 20-year unbeaten reign in the event for the United States. They have not lost a 4x400m relay since finishing in silver behind the unified team of former Soviet Union states at the 1992 Barcelona Games. On Saturday at the Olympic Stadium they were in command from the outset, with 22-year-old Courtney Okolo handing the Americans the lead after a solid opening lead. Natasha Hastings extended the advantage after the second leg, but a superb third leg by Jamaica’s Shericka Jackson , who closed the gap on Phyllis Francis set up a nervy finale. Felix set off calmly on her anchor leg pursued by Novlene Williams-Mills , the 34-year-old veteran who underwent a double mastectomy following the 2012 Olympics after being diagnosed with breast cancer. But just when it looked as if Williams-Mills might pull off a shock, Felix coolly kicked it up a gear and accelerated to victory. Felix, who 24 hours earlier had helped the USA win 4x100m relay gold, has now won more track gold medals than any other woman athlete in history.
