Greatest Swimming Relay In Olympic History – USA Wins Gold

With one of the best swimming races in the history of the Olympics, the USA wins the gold medal over France. The fact that France was trash talking the US team made the win even more impressive. This win kept Michael Phelps in the running for sweeping the Olympics with 8 medals.

The swimmer from France was in the lead prior to the last leg. Even with less than 50 meters to go, France was in the lead, but Jason Lezak of the US came from nowhere to split the 100m at 46.06 seconds shattering the former world record by 4 seconds.

Phelps already won one the day before, this made two. At the time of this post, Phelps won another gold medal, tying the record for most medals of all time. Tomorrow he is scheduled for two races, both for medals. Tomorrow he might be the best Olympian ever with 12 medals and 10 gold.
