World records for the 4100 metre medley relay are shown here, along with their development over time.
FINA (which stands for “Fédération Internationale de Natation”) is the international governing body for competitive swimming and aquatics at the Olympic and Paralympic levels.
In 1953, FINA officially started keeping track of medley relay world records.
When comparing world records, the longer course (50-meter pool) records predate the shorter course (25-meter pool) records by some time.
In 1956, FINA changed its rules for recognising world records to require that all future record attempts be held in 50-meter (or 55-yard) pools.
Since 1991, the short-course world records have been treated as their own category.
The FINA Technical Swimming Congress voted to enable world records in six events on July 25, 2013.
The mixed 200 medley and 200 free relays, the men’s and women’s 200 free relays, and the women’s and men’s 200 medley relays in the short course metres.
For these events, FINA agreed in October 2013 to implement “standards” before recognising a new record as a world record.
Which Country Holds the World Record in the Mixed 4x100m Medley Relay?
In the most recent Olympic swimming competition in Tokyo, Great Britain took first place in the mixed 4×100-meter medley relay.
In the mixed 4x100m medley relay, four British swimmers (two men and two women) finished first in a timing of 3 minutes, 37 seconds.
By completing the race in that amount of time, they broke the previous world record.
Kathleen Dawson, Adam Peaty, James Guy, and Anna Hopkin are the four swimmers responsible for this new world record.
Britain Wins Mixed 4x100m Medley Relay Gold in World Record Time
In the first-ever Olympic 4×100-meter mixed medley relay competition, Great Britain triumphed. Each team of four consisted of two men and two women, who swam different legs of the race.
Caeleb Dressel’s ambitions of winning six gold medals at Tokyo were dashed when the United States placed fifth.
The teams can choose their own swimmers and relay assignments. In contrast to the other seven teams, the Americans chose to go with Dressel at the end of the freestyle event.
After Torri Huske, 18, completed the butterfly leg, the Americans trailed the leaders by more than 7 seconds. Caeleb Dressel took over.
Even for the best male swimmer in the world, that was an impossible challenge. The fastest time was posted by Dressel, but it wasn’t enough to catch up to the other teams.
In the first-ever Olympic 4100-meter mixed medley relay, which included both male and female swimmers, Great Britain came out on top.
Caeleb Dressel’s ambitions of winning six gold medals in Tokyo were dashed when the United States placed fifth overall.
Who swims for each leg of the race is up to each squad. In contrast to the other seven teams, the Americans chose to go with Dressel at the end of the freestyle event.
