Date 9 August 2016
StatusOlympic
LocationEstádio Aquático Olímpico, Parque Olímpico da Barra, Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro
Participants73 from 16 countries

Great Britain had won the 800 relay at the 2015 World Championships, shocking the United States, which had not lost this event in over a decade at major internationals. Britain was expected to be formidable in Rio, but the USA had Michael Phelps back, and a rejuvenated Ryan Lochte, and was the favorite.

Conor Dwyer put the USA in the lead in the final, posting 1:45.23 to lead Japan’s Kosuke Hagino, with Great Britain in fifth place on the first leg. On the second leg, American Townley Haas swam 1:44.14 and effectively ended the gold medal battle, giving the USA almost a three-second lead, with Lochte and Phelps yet to swim. Those two swam effectively but were never pushed, and they never pushed it, the USA winning gold in 7:00.66, with Britain in second, 2½ seconds behind, and just edging out Japan for the silver medal.
