The Aussies set the world record in their relay-winning run and will look to replicate that speed individually even further.

Campbell was also on that relay-winning team and won bronze in the 100 to go along with her six career Olympic medals.

Those looking to bet on the Olympics can also find odds for the medley relay, where Team USA is a slight favorite over Australia.
