Always placed but never in the lead at the various relay passages, the Australians (Kaylee McKeown, Chelsea Hodges, Emma McKeon and Cate Campbell) topped the Americans in the last length to claim the Olympic title in the 4x100m medley. At the same time, the Australians set an Olympic record in 3’51”60.
The last American torchbearer Abbey Weitzel cracked against the Australian Cate Campbell, who beat her to the final touch. As at the 2016 Olympics, Weitzel’s teammates will have to be content with the silver medal. They finished second for 13 hundredths, in 3’51”73. The Canadians completed the podium by finishing one second behind the winners, in 3’52”60.
