Australia won the 4x100 women's freestyle relay Olympic gold for the third time in a row, beating their own world record by three seconds and helping take the sting out of a disappointing first day of finals in the pool. The quartet of sisters Bronte and Cate Campbell, Meg Harris and Emma McKeon took 0.36 seconds off their previous best of 3:30.05 set in April 2018, with a world record of 3:29.69. Ecstatic with their performance, team members made a show of presenting their gold medals to each other after the ceremony.
