I know all of you didn’t watch finals, but one of the sports channels in my country is broadcasting finals!
As I think everybody already knows, USA won. People liked this on Twitter so I’m posting a bit of what happened on that relay!
First of all Ryan was the best swimmer from that relay, NO DOUBTS! He recovered from more than a body length difference! And after that Matt was able to keep up the rhythm and win.
But the Japanese team strategy was to put their strongest swimmers first, so Conor couldn’t keep up on the beginning.
And Michael managed the difference, he didn’t let the Japanese go away too much, and he ditched McEvoy from his feet (remembering both Michael and McEvoy had just swam the 100m free final).
Then Ryan made the difference, he was head to head with the Japanese when he touched the wall!
And Matt’s leg of the relay was the real emotional moment! Sometimes he would push more, sometimes the Japanese would!
The last 50 were amazing! Matt was first, with half a body length difference, but the Japanese pushed hard, and the win came only at the wall!
It was the best relay race I’ve ever seen in my life!
