ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - After her stunning gold medal winning performance earlier this week, Lydia Jacoby of Seward, Alaska was called on for the 100-meter breaststroke portion of the women’s 4X100 medley relay.

Jacoby was the second leg of the race and swam a time of 1 minute and 5.03 seconds. She had the fastest time of her leg of the race.

The U.S. took silver with a total time of 3:51.73. Australia took gold with a time of 3:51.60, while Canada took bronze with a time of 3:52.50.
