Olympic Record 6:58.56 WR / United States USA / 13 August 2008

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.
