Six of the eight teams have made at least one substitution for tonight’s women’s 4×200 freestyle relay, including three from the United States.
Melanie Margalis led off the prelims in a best time of 1:56.58, earning a berth on the finals relay. She’s joined by individual 200 representatives Katie Ledecky and Leah Smith, and Mallory Comerford. The lineup ends up being the top four finishers at U.S. Trials.
The Australians have made a pair of moves, subbing in Emma McKeon and Ariarne Titmus for Leah Neale and Shayna Jack.
The top seeded Chinese have made two moves, bringing in Ai Yanhan and rising youngster Li Bingjie. Hungary brings in Katinka Hosszu, Russia brings in Veronika Popova, and the Canadians bring in Mackenzie Padington.
Canada, the 2016 Olympic bronze medalists, likely forfeit any shot of a medal as they opt not to bring in Penny Oleksiak.
The Netherlands and Japan are the two teams who stand pat from the morning.
