Double Up: The US Men's and Women's Swim Relay Teams Both Win Gold
Before London, the US men's swimming team had never lost the 4x100m medley relay — and the streak continued today, as Matt Grevers, Brendan Hansen, Michael Phelps, and Nathan Adrian nabbed yet another first-place finish for Team USA. The win increased Michael Phelps's total medal count to 22, 18 of them gold.
Maybe the men were inspired by the US women's team; just minutes before, Missy Franklin, Rebecca Soni, Dana Vollmer, and Allison Schmitt not only won the women's 4x100m medley relay, but also set a new world record in the event (3:52.05), beating China's record set in 2009.
