The Australia team of Seebohm (59.52), Georgia Bohl (1:06.85), Emma McKeon (56.42), and Bronte Campbell (51.57) combined for a new Games record of 3:54.36 in a tight race with Canada.

The Canadian team of Masse, Kierra Smith, Penny Oleksiak, and Taylor Ruck grabbed silver after having control of the race through the 300 thanks to splits from Masse (59.02), Smith (1:06.68), and Oleksiak (56.86), but it wasn’t enough to hold off the charging Bronte Campbell down the stretch. Ruck, to her credit, was an impressive 52.54 on the end of the relay.

Grabbing bronze was the Welsh team of Davies, Chloe Tutton, Alys Thomas, and Kathryn Greenslade in 4:00.75.
