Poland got out to the lead from the start as Adela Piskorska led off in a 1:00.40, just off her 59.79 that she swam to win the event in last night’s final. Then, Dominika Sztandera made the relay’s gap even larger as she blasted a 1:06.07 on the breaststroke leg, the fastest by over a second and a half. That swim was much faster than her flat start 1:07.75 that she swam for 4th place earlier this week.

Sweden’s Sara Junevik dove in for the butterfly leg and shrunk Poland’s lead from 2.87 seconds to 2.11 seconds as Junevik had the fastest fly split of a 57.39.

The freestyle leg proved to be crucial. Hungary’s Nikolett Padar split the fastest split with a 54.02 to move the relay up from 3rd to 2nd while Denmark moved up from 4th to 3rd after a 54.2 split from Julie Kepp Kensen while Sweden fell to 4th.
