Multiple records fell tonight in the women’s 4×100 medley relay, with the American women setting a new Championship Record in 3:47.89 and the Canadians a new National Record in 3:48.87. The Americans won gold and Canada took silver.
The Championship Record by the Americans erased the 2010 record of 3:48.29 set by China, and the Canadians took the 2009 record of 3:49.45 off the books.
The American women won their third relay event of the meet, also claiming the 4×100 free and 4×50 medley. The Canadian women won their third relay medal, adding to the pair of golds they have from the 4×50 and 4×200 free.
Swimming for USA was Ali DeLoof, Lilly King, Kelsi Worrell and Mallory Comerford, and swimming for Canada was Kylie Masse, Rachel Nicol, Katerine Savard and Penny Oleksiak. Notably, Worrell swam the race just minutes after getting into a collision in the warm-down pool that required stitches. Her split of 55.48 on fly was the 2nd fastest in the field.
