My boys smash the old mark set by the Aussies in 2000 by .5 seconds. All smiles over here. They absolutely annihilated the rest of the field. In a word: lekke.

Michael Phelps was on the US relay team which seems to be on the decline. They'd won gold in every mens 4x100 relay since '96. Then they were beaten by Australia in Sydney and only managed silver. This year they were downgraded to bronze. So while Phelps won't be able to get eight gold medals, he's still in contention for eight medals.

As for the former champion Aussies? A disappointing 6th place in last night's race. What happened?

Oh, and for the record, its spelled Pieter van den Hoogenband. The Dutchmen helped his relay team to silver.

South Africa! Brilliant!
