MIXED 4×100 FREE

1. London Roar 1 – 3:16.04
2. Aqua Centurions 2 – 3:16.38
3. Energy Standard 2 – 3:17.59
4. Energy Standard 1 – 3:18.94
5. Aqua Centurions 1 – 3:21.29
6. Iron 2 – 3:22.61
7. London Roar – 3:22.82
8. Iron 1 – 3:25.10

London Roar stacked their top relay, going for the win, and it paid off. The Roar swam the top time in the ISL this year, although, Cate Campbell has already raced a lot today, and the Skins races are now rapidly approaching. On the Roar’s B relay, they didn’t exactly go with their A team, especially considering breaststroker Adam Peaty went 2nd, splitting 50.73.
