Dara Torres (Parkland, Calif.) earned her 12th Olympic medal as part of the 4x100m medley relay team that won the silver Sunday morning at the National Aquatics Center.

Swimming the anchor leg of the relay shortly after taking the silver in the 50m freestyle, Torres ties fellow swimmer Jenny Thompson for the most Olympic medals won by an American woman. The other members of the relay team were Natalie Coughlin (Lafayette, Calif.), Rebecca Soni (Plainsboro, N.J.) and Christine Magnuson (Tinley Park, Ill.).

The gold medal went to Australia, which touched in a world record time of 3:52.69 to the 3:53.30 by the U.S. (which set an American record). China won the bronze with a 3:56.11.
