Tom Dean became the first British swimmer to win more than one gold medal in a single Olympiad in 113 years after helping the GB team to victory in the 4x200m freestyle relay final at the Tokyo Aquatic Center.

Dean produced the performance of his life to triumph in the men’s 200m freestyle 24 hours earlier in British record time, and had a solid, if unspectacular, start in the relay race before his teammates finished the job. .

Joining Dean was Duncan Scott, who took silver in Tuesday’s singles race, James Guy and Matthew Richards, and their time of six minutes 58.58 seconds saw them win Team GB Tokyo 2020’s third swimming gold.

Dean is therefore the only British swimmer to have achieved two golds at the same Games in more than a century, following in the footsteps of Henry Taylor, who prevailed in the men’s 400 and 1500 m freestyle races in 1908.

GB was the favorite for the relay, having also qualified the fastest of the semifinals.

Dean started the race and actually performed as the slowest of the British quartet, with a time of 1 minute 45.72 seconds, which put them behind the Russian Olympic Committee and the United States after the first 200 meters. .

Guy, however, established a narrow lead for the pre-race favorites in the middle of the stage with his division of 1: 44.40 and, despite a slow start, Richards had taken that lead to more than a second with his 1: 45.01.

Scott, whose second-place finish behind Dean on Tuesday meant he picked up his third Olympic silver, then emphatically took it home with 1: 43.45 as Great Britain finished more than three seconds ahead of second-place ROC and just 0.03 seconds of a world record time.

Scott said: “It’s really special with these guys. Matt, third, was so cool and the guys up front executed their race plans very well. So close to a world record at the end, I’m a bit shattered if anything! ! “

Dean said, “I can’t even put it into words. I couldn’t yesterday and I can’t today. I can’t thank these guys enough, from the bottom of my heart. Unreal.”

Scott and Guy were part of the team that won silver at the event in 2016, with the latter adding: “As a child, winning an Olympic gold medal was my absolute dream and finally doing it after 25 years is very emotional.”

For Richards, 18, it was his first experience at the Olympics, and he said: “When you race with guys like this, having a great leg is easy.

“When they prepared you as well as they did and you have literally one of the best freestylers in the world and one of the best freestylers behind you, (it’s a) privilege. And the confidence that it gives to someone, and the experience, the money can’t buy it. “

Dean and Scott complete one-two for Team GB in 200m freestyle

Tom Dean was victorious in the men’s 200m freestyle and Great Britain stayed to celebrate a famous double after Duncan Scott collected silver at the Tokyo Aquatic Center.

The success of the quartet on Wednesday morning adds to what was an amazing start to the Games for Great Britain in the pool following Adam Peaty’s gold in the men’s 100m breaststroke and the triumph of Tom Daley and Matty Lee in the final of synchronized 10m platform dives on Monday.
