Summary

The US would place 1-2-3 in both freestyle events in 1924 so the victory of the American women in the relay was, barring disqualification, amongst the most foregone conclusions of the Games. The individual 100 metres medallists were joined by Fraze Donnelly and lived up to their billing as they became the first quartet to break five minutes for the event. The British four finished a clear second with Sweden a distant third.
