The USA women’s team won the 4 x 100 meter medley, which means Reitz graduate, Lilly King, is coming home with at least two gold medals.
King won the 100 meter breaststroke earlier in the week. After failing to qualify for the 200 meter breaststroke, King capped off her first Olympics with a second gold medal Saturday evening along with fellow teammates Kathleen Baker, Dana Vollmer and Simone Manuel.
The Americans finished with a time of 3:53.13. Australia won silver and Denmark took bronze.
The win was also the United States’ 1,000th gold medal in Olympics history.
