USA Defends The 4X200m Freestyle And Takes Gold In Rio – Rio 2016

Freestyle queen Katie Ledecky made sure of her third swimming gold medal of the Rio Olympics, and fourth of her career, after anchoring the U.S. women to victory in the 4×200 metres freestyle relay on Wednesday.

Australia, who led until Ledecky hit the water, took silver and Canada the bronze.

The U.S. were the defending champions but only Allison Schmitt, who swam the leadoff leg in Rio, was in the race lineup from that London 2012 golden quartet that also beat Australia into second place.

Leah Smith and Maya DiRado swam second and third respectively before Ledecky, brought home the gold with a typically powerful swim from behind.
