Date19 September 2000
StatusOlympic
LocationSydney International Aquatic Centre, Olympic Park, Sydney, New South Wales
Participants76 from 16 countries
Olympic Record 7:11.95 WR / Unified Team EUN / 27 July 1992

If the 4 x 100 metres freestyle relay had an epic, the double distance relay turned into a cakewalk for Australia and the only real excitement concerned by how much they were going to beat the world record - the answer turned out to be 1.74 seconds. Behind the dominant Australians the next four teams were separated by a third of a second with the USA edging out the fast finishing Dutch team for the silver medal. A sign of the strength of the Australian team was that they could afford to pick Grant Hackett and Daniel Kowalski only for the heat swims.
