Team USA downed the women’s 400-meter medley relay world record at the 2015 Duel in the Pool tonight at the IU Natatorium at IUPUI.  USA Swimming has uploaded the video from tonight, along with all the rest of the videos in the link to the right entitled “RACE VIDEOS.”

Courtney Bartholomew, Katie Meili, Kelsi Worrell and Simone Manuel set the world record in the women’s 400-meter medley relay at the 2015 Duel in the Pool.

In a dogfight against the European All Stars, Team USA put up a 3:45.20 to win the event and clip the world record of 3:45.56 set by the U.S. back in 2011.

The European All Stars of Katinka Hosszu, Yuliya Efimova, Jeanette Ottesen and Ranomi Kromowidjojo took second in 3:45.46.

Hosszu broke the U.S. Open record in the 100 back with a 55.71 leadoff.  That’s lower than the 55.97 set by Natalie Coughlin to leadoff the former world record.
