Sjostrom (SWE) sets 100m free OR as Australia set new 4×100 free relay WR with win

Time for the last swimming final of the morning. It’s the women’s 4x100m relay final.

Strong start from Great Britain who turn at 50m in the lead with Anna Hopkin. But it’s Sarah Sjostrom who reaches 100m first for Sweden in a new Olympic record 52.62.

Australia take the lead at 200 and they are pulling away! Well inside world record time. They are three, maybe four body lengths clear as they come home in a new World Record time!

3:29.69, breaking their own world record from the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Olympic Record from Rio 2016!

Canada take silver and USA bronze.
