US Olympic men’s relay swim team kicks French bootie

The French men’s relay swim team had been talking smack this weekend about how they were going to “smash” the American team.  The US team was not favored to win the 4×100-meter freestyle relay final  … but they did, edging out the French last night by a fingertip and setting a new world record in classic fashion.
