Via FINA: After a huge “tsunami” hit the preliminaries in the morning, with the non-qualification of the US team for the final, France revalidated the 2013 world title in a time of 3:10.74. The European team is always one of the quartets to watch in this event and was certainly one of the favourites to win, but things became easier with the unexpected and shocking 11th place of the US squad in the heats.
