Russia dominated the men’s 400-meter medley relay en route to a meet record at the 2015 FINA World Junior Championships.

Russia’s Roman Larin, Anton Chupkov, Daniil Pakohomov and Vladislav Kozlov won the finale in 3:36.44.

That swim downed the meet record of 3:38.13 set by Japan in 2013, and just missed clearing the World Junior record of 3:36.38 set by Philipp Shopin, Chupkov, Pakhomov and Kozlov at the 2015 European Games.

USA’s Michael Taylor, Reece Whitley, Michael Andrew and Maxime Rooney raced their way to a silver in 3:37.51.

Australia’s Clyde Lewis, Matthew Wilson, Brayden McCarthy and Kyle Chalmers earned bronze in 3:40.21.
