Great relay. Team USA finished a mere 80 milliseconds before the French. Very close game. In fact, the French have been leading for the last 150 meters until the very last moment. Moreover, the Sweden who placed 5th also beat the world record.
Not only did the US break the world record by 4 seconds with their astounding 3:08.24 minutes, Michael Phelps’ hope for eight medals stays alive.
On the other hand, Katie Hoff lost the gold medal to Rebecca Adlington from Great Britain by 70 milliseconds, placing second in the Women’s 400 meter Freestyle. Good game also.
