Fifth relay team
There was no new relay medal for the Netherlands in the mixed 4×100-meter freestyle relay. The quartet finished fifth, well behind in medals.
Stan Pijnenburg was the first to go and had to give up the ground tied against the best. Jesse Puts therefore had to start from seventh place and he kept this position. The same applied to Tessa Giele, but Marrit Steenbergen had a good 100 meters in the house and the Netherlands swam to fifth place.
Gold went to Australia for Canada and the United States.
