2012 Olympics Video: France Beats Ryan Lochte, Michael Phelps, USA in 4x100 Freestyle Relay

Four years after USA took down France in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay, Yannick Agnel and his boys got their revenge.

While the whole world was watching to see how Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte would work together a day after having to compete against one another, the French team went ahead and earned the sort of come-from-behind victory that won the U.S. team acclaim during the Beijing Games.

Agnel ultimately finished a full second before Lochte. The Americans got second place with a time of 3:10.38, and the Russians took bronze with a time of 3:11.41.
