Tokyo, Aug 1 (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 1st Aug, 2021 ) :Veteran Australian sprinter Cate Campbell said winning the women's 4x100m medley relay gold medal on Sunday was all the sweeter because they dethroned arch-rivals the United States.
The Americans were two-time defending champions but the Australian team of Kaylee McKeown, Chelsea Hodges, Emma McKeon and Campbell proved too hot too handle.
"I've been in some incredibly close battles with them over the years where they've got me, but to do it on the world's biggest stage, it's a dream come true.
" It was Campbell's eighth Olympic medal over her long career.
Canada's Kylie Masse was fastest through the opening backstroke leg before teenager Lydia Jacoby put the Americans in front following the breaststroke.
