If the 4 x 100 metres freestyle relay had an epic, the double distance relay turned into a cakewalk for Australia and the only real excitement concerned by how much they were going to beat the world record - the answer turned out to be 1.74 seconds. Behind the dominant Australians the next four teams were separated by a third of a second with the USA edging out the fast finishing Dutch team for the silver medal. A sign of the strength of the Australian team was that they could afford to pick [Grant Hackett] and [Daniel Kowalski] only for the heat swims.
