LONDON --- Georgia's Allison Schmitt anchored the United States women's 4x100-meter freestyle relay that claimed the bronze medal at the Olympics on Saturday.

Schmitt and the Americans stopped the clock in 3:34.24 to come in third behind Australia (an Olympic-record 3:33.15) and the Netherlands (3:33.79). Schmitt helped lower the American record, eclipsing the 3:34.33 set in 2008 by a quintet that included former Lady Bulldog Kara Lynn Joyce.

Former Lady Bulldog Amanda Weir swam on the 4x100-meter freestyle relay in the prelims on Saturday, so she earned a bronze medal as well. Weir spent 2005 in Athens, helping the Lady Bulldogs win the program's fourth national championship.

Also on Saturday, incoming freshman Matias Koski of Finland came in 21st in the 400-meter freestyle with a time of 3:54.96.
