Australia's relay team breaks records

Australia’s women’s relay team just broke a national record over the weekend.

Led by Australia’s fastest woman, 19-year-old Torrie Lewis, the 4x100m relay team broke a record that had stood for 24 years at the Sydney Track Classic on Saturday evening.

The team completed the race in 42.94 seconds, which was five hundredths of a second quicker than the previous national record.

“I think we make a great team and the relay is so fun to do,” Lewis told the ABC.

“So now a final [at the Olympics] in Paris hopefully.”
