So much for the call of "smashing the Americans" in the 4x100 swimming relay.
The United States 400-meter freestyle relay team of Phelps, Cullen Jones, Garret Weber-Gale and Jason Lezak came from behind to win the gold medal, upsetting France. The biggest hero of the day turned out to be Lezak, the American anchor.
Totally blowed away by it! Those last few strokes were amazing. It was as if he was leaping out of the water for that last push forward. I was on the edge of my seat hoping that we would beat the frenchies! Woohoo. Amazing.
