Day 2 belonged to Australia, who closed the gap with the United States on the medal table. The Aussies are now tied with the Americans with two gold medals each. Ariarne Titmus won gold in the 400 free, handing USA’s Katie Ledecky her first Olympic defeat. Emma McKeon added to Australia’s haul with a bronze in the women’s 100 fly. Matthew Temple, Zac Incerti, Alexander Graham, and Kyle Chambers added a bronze in the men’s 4×100 free.
Team USA held onto first place thanks to the men’s 4×100 free relay. Caeleb Dressel, Blake Pieroni, Bowe Becker, and Zach Apple gave the Americans their sole gold of the morning. Other than Ledecky’s silver, the United States were shut out of the podia in the individual events. Both Torri Huske in the women’s 100 fly and Michael Andrew in the men’s 100 breast finished fourth.
Canada moved into third place with Maggie MacNeil’s gold medal in the 100 fly, in a very tight race that saw only .14 separate 1st place from 4th place.
Adam Peaty put Great Britain on the table when he defended his 2016 Olympic gold medal in the 100 breast.
Arno Kamminga gave Netherlands their first medal with a silver in the 100 breast.
