Olympic Record 7:59.87 / United States USA / 25 July 1996

The second staging of the event at the Olympic Games saw the USA as repeat victors. Australia’s lead-off swimmer was individual champion Susie O’Neill and she pushed her team into the lead. For the next two legs the USA clawed back the home nation’s lead but it was not until Jenny Thompson passed Petria Thomas with 50 metres to go that they took the lead. A brilliant anchor leg by Germany’s Kerstin Kielgaß almost cost Australia the silver medal but Thomas just held off the final German swimmer
