LONDON (AP) -- Allison Schmitt rallied from behind on the anchor leg to lead the United States to the gold medal in the women's 4x200 freestyle relay at the Olympics. The Americans posted an Olympic record time of 7 minutes, 42.92 seconds. Schmitt entered the water about a half second behind, but pulled ahead on her first return lap to a win.

Teen sensation Missy Franklin got things started for the U.S., followed by Dana Vollmer, Shannon Vreeland and then Schmitt.

Australia settled for the silver, France won the bronze.

Nathan Adrian of Bremerton, Wash., is an Olympic champion. But by the slimmest of margins.

Adrian struck gold in the 100-meter freestyle. He finished in a time of 47.52 seconds, one-hundredths of a second in front of Australia's James Magnussen. Canadian Brent Hayden took the bronze.
