I hope everyone was able to see the Men's Olympic 4 x 100m Swimming Relay. It was AMAZING. The commentators were saying it was the best relay race they had ever seen. It was incredible - I was jumping off the sofa, like an idiot. It is amazing what the Olympics will do to you.
The French were the favorites to win the race and had been talking smack that they were going to "crush the Americans". Well, that didn't happen. The Americans beat the French and crushed the world record by 4 seconds with a new World record time of 3:08.24.
Superstar, Michael Phelps, lead off the relay. Garrett Weber-Gale was second and Cullen Jones swam the 3rd leg. Lezak swam the final leg in 46.06 seconds - the fastest relay split in history! Lezak made up almost a body length to win.
They worked together well and all Americans should be proud of what they accomplished. It was great to see them on the podium to receive those gold medals.
