BEIJING -- The USA men's 4 x 100 relay team just set a world record in the finals of the event and beat France by .08 seconds.

Michael Phelps started of the race and was second following his turn. Garrett Weber-Gale made up the time in second portion.

Then Cullen Jones kept the team in the hunt finishing second on his leg and Jason Lezak's 46.06 split and his out stretched arms gave his team the victory.

You could tell the Americans had won as my collegues at the NY Times in the office next door screamed in excitement of the close finish.
