The team of Natalie Coughlin, Lacey Nymeyer, Joyce and Dara Torres stopped the clock in 3:34.33.
Joyce swam a key leg for the U.S. in the relay, moving the team into second position at the 300-meter mark, 71-hundredths behind the Netherlands. Torres held off Australia and China down the stretch for the silver medal. The Netherlands won gold in an Olympic record time of 3:33.76, while Australia took bronze in 3:35.05.
"Everyone did a great job and we're really happy with silver because I don't think we were even expecting that," said Torres, who at 41 became the oldest Olympic swimming medalist in history.
Joyce, the 18-time NCAA champion for the Lady Bulldogs, claimed her third Olympic medal. Joyce won two silver medals at the 2004 Games.
