Former Gators Ryan Lochte and Conor Dwyer part of gold-medal 4x200 relay team



Former Florida swimmers Ryan Lochte and Conor Dwyer played integral roles on the American gold-medal winning 4x200 freestyle relay team on Tuesday evening in London.

Lochte swam the opening leg in 1:45.15., giving the United States a one-second lead. Dwyer swam the second leg in 1:45.23, extending the lead to two seconds.  Ricky Berens swam the third leg to give the U.S. a four second lead, and Michael Phelps anchored the race with a time of 1:44.05 to give the Americans a first-place finish and the gold medal. 

It is the second gold medal for Lochte, who won the first gold medal for the U.S. on Saturday in the 400-meter individual medley. He also swam the anchor leg in the 400 freestyle relay, which won a silver medal for the United States.
