    Australia takes on the undefeated USA - Men’s 4x100m Relay

    The 4x100 meters freestyle relay is traditionally one of the most expected events in Olympic swimming. The final in Sydney 2000 took that even further.   Side by side, in lanes 4 and 5, teams USA and Australia as the strongest contenders for the Gold medal. The USA had Gary Hall to finish the relay; Australia had Ian Thorpe as its final swimmer. And an arena packed with Australian supporters.   And that wouldn’t be the only dispute to look at. Sweden in lane 1, Brazil in lane 2, Germany in lane 3 and Russia in lane 7 all wanted the bronze medal.
