For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: The greatest swimming relay race in the history of the Olympics!
Jason Lezak charged home in the anchor leg of the 4x100m freestyle relay to outtouch 100m world-record holder Alain Bernard of France. Lezak swam a 46.06 anchor, the fastest in history. Not bad for the oldest swimmer on the U.S. men's team, at age 32. The team time of 3:08.24 shattered the world record set by the U.S. team Sunday night in the prelims at 3:12.23.
