It’s been a summer loaded with swimming action, from U.S. Nationals to the European Championships to Pan Pacs to Asian Games to Junior Pan Pacs. But through all of it, you won’t see a more exciting relay race than the men’s medley at the 2018 Asian Games.
Watch how the final, closer-than-close race of the 2018 Asian Games unfolded in Jakarta.
