In the swimming mixed 4x100m medley event teams can choose the order in which their swimmers compete, meaning during some legs women face off directly against men.
The event is one the highlights of the most gender-balanced Games in history, joining triathlon, judo, athletics, shooting, archery and table tennis in having a new mixed-gender Olympic event.
Great Britain swam to victory – and a new world record – in the debut Olympic mixed 4x100m medley relay final. China and Australia took silver and bronze respectively.
