Phelps, Lochte will lead USA in Men’s 4x100m Freestyle Relay Final

Jason Lezak, the American hero of 2008’s Beijing Olympics in the men’s 4x100m freestyle has probably had his last Olympic swim.

Lezak anchored the US relay team in the qualifying swim today but will not swim in the event finals, where the US will look to continue its dominance. Instead, Nathan Adrian, Michael Phelps, Cullen Jones and Ryan Lochte will swim in order with a powerful Australian team nipping at their heels.

The event is scheduled to live stream at 3 p.m. central after the other swimming events, but will not be aired on TV until primetime on NBC.
