Australia win the women's 4x100m Olympic relay in world record time as the Campbell sisters Bronte and Cate fight back to deny the United States.
The Australian quartet seemed in trouble Emma McKeon and Brittany Elmslie trailed to Simone Manuel and Abbey Weitzeil but came back to win in 3 minutes 30.65 seconds, 33 hundredths under the record they set in 2014.
That was due to first Bronte evening things up in her section against Dana Vollmer and sister Cate powering away from distance specialist Katie Ledecky in the anchor leg.
The Americans finished 1.24 seconds behind to take silver with bronze going to Canada.
