Summary

After a 104 year wait for an Olympic swimming championship Italy won three in Sydney in 2000.

Two of the golds went to Domenico Fioravanti in the breaststroke events and the other, in this event, to Massimiliano Rosolino. Rosolino had already won two medals in freestyle events in Sydney and had been long established as one of the best in the world without ever quite reaching champion status.

This all changed during the course of the race and especially over the course of the third leg, breaststroke, where Rosolino swept into the lead. On his specialist freestyle leg he moved even further away to record the second fastest time ever and break the Olympic record. Tom Dolan and Tom Wilkens, both of the USA, completed the podium positions. Dolan had already retained his 400 metres medley title in these Games.
