Although none of their swimmers were slower than 53.10, he was Emma McKeonsplit 51.35 in Game 3, which really put Australia a considerable distance from the rest of the field. McKeon’s was the 5th fastest stint ever, interrupting his teammate Celine Campbell‘s streak of the six fastest separations ever.

Sweden took the lead right out of lane 6 thanks to Sarah Sjoström who broke the Olympic record with 52.62. Brontë Campbell from Australia was next in 53.01, followed by Denmark Pernille Blume (53.07). Britain and Canada both produced departures below 54, as well, from Anna Hopkin (53.16) and Kayla Sanchez (53,42).
the United States Abbaye de Weitzeil was the fastest in the number 2 position with 52.68. She shared 52.56 in Rio, also in the second leg. Ranomi Kromowidjojo (52.87) from the Netherlands and Australia Meg Harris (53.09) were the second fastest # 2.
McKeon was leading the 3rd stage by 1.8 seconds. The next fastest was Nathalie Hinds of the United States, of which 53.15 moved the Americans from fourth to second. from Sweden Louise Hansson (53.51) and that of Canada Rébecca Smith (53.63) were the only other under-54s in Game 3.
Femke Heemskerk clocked a time of 52.05 at the end of the Dutch relay for the fastest anchor. Cate Campbell‘s 52.24 was next, bringing Australia for the record. Campbell’s fastest split, however, is 50.93 from the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships. She has been under 52 seconds 11 times. Penny Oleksiak landed a 52.26 to overtake the United States Simone Manuel by 0.70 and secure the silver medal for Canada.
Manuel’s 52.96 was the second fastest time for the US team. That was justification for the 2016 Olympic champion, whose semi-final performance at the US Olympic Trials put her in a final spot. Olivia Smoliga, Catie Deloof, and Allison Schmitt, who finished third, fifth and sixth in that race with times ranging from 53-middle to 54-low, ran over the United States relay in the prelims but none broke 53.4.
