Americans may have the most relay experience thanks to the NCAA, but they chose not to use it in the women’s 4×100 medley relay on Saturday night in Rio. Team USA was the most conservative of all the eight teams in the final, with an add-up total reaction time of 1.78 seconds. The second-most conservative quartet was Denmark, with 1.66 seconds, followed by Russia with 1.52.
Canada’s Penny Oleksiak was the most daring; her reaction time registered -0.01. Federica Pellegrini was next with a 0.02 reaction time as the anchor for Italy.
