Ryan Lochte leads USA to gold in the 4x200m


RENANG INDONESIA. Swimming very close to his Championships Record of 1:41.08 from 2010, and much faster than his 200m free victory (1:41.92) in Istanbul, Ryan Lochte (USA) gave a decisive lead for his team in the 4x200m free, touching first after the first leg in 1:41.17. The North Americans (besides Lochte, the quartet was formed by Conor Dwyer, Michael Klueh and Matthew McLean) never lost the control of the race, touching first for gold in 6:51.40. The silver went to Australia in 6:52.29, while Germany, led by Paul Biedermann, earned bronze in 6:53.22.
