With 7 Golds, Caeleb Dressel Ties Phelps' Record At Swimming Worlds

Swimming – 17th FINA World Aquatics Championships – Men's 100m Freestyle Final – Budapest Hungary

Comerford earned her first gold medal of the 2017 World Championships by setting an American record (52.59 seconds) during the opening leg of the women's 400-meter relay on Sunday, July 23, setting the stage for U-L teammate Kelsi Worrell, five-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky and two-time Olympic gold medalist Manuel to give the US a first-place finish.

Camille Lacourt won France a belated first gold in the men's 50m backstroke, home favourite Katinka Hosszu continued her dominance of the women's 400m individual medley and Gregorio Paltrinieri retained his title in the men's 1500m freestyle.

Dressel became the fourth American man to win three individual gold medals at one world championship, joining Tim Shaw (1975), Phelps (2003 and 2007) and Ryan Lochte (2011). He said, "It's back to the drawing board, see how things are going and guess I will be supporting Jo all the way". "You have to enjoy the moment and refocus very quickly".

"Man, that was a lot of fun", he said.

Manuel touched the wall at 52.27 seconds with Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden, the world-record holder, at 0.04 back while Pernille Blume of Denmark took bronze at 0.42.

"He's an unbelievable athlete and he knows how to race", said Manuel.

He never trailed and delivered two lengths of sizzling pace in 49.86 seconds.

In her second race of the tournament, Comerford helped set a world record as part of the 400 mixed-medley relay team, which logged a time of 3:40.28 in Wednesday's prelims.

"I think I only had to run twice", Dressel said with a smile. The silver medal was bagged by Kristof Milak from Hungary with a timing of 50.62s. Hungary's Kristof Milak picked up the silver with a timing of 50.62s, while James Guy from the United Kingdom tied with Schooling at third place.

The dispute escalated over the past week, with de Villiers issuing an appeal on Facebook saying "Watch out for blind trust". Gen de Villiers' resignation comes a day after a bill to toughen France's security laws passed its first reading.

The 19-year-old University of Louisville sophomore swam the third leg on the USA gold-medal-winning 400-meter mixed-freestyle relay team, which beat the event's previous world record by more than three seconds.

Sjostorm also holds world-records in the 50m butterfly.

In-form Dressel showed no signs of fatigue some 30 minutes earlier as he posted the second fastest time in qualifying for the 50m freestyle semi-finals.

Dressel's exploits put Katie Ledecky's unerring speed in the shade as the American routinely swam to women's 800m freestyle gold in eight minutes 12.68 seconds. Nobody has ever done it at a World Championships.

Hopes had rested heavily on Seebohm with Australia on the cusp of finishing without a world title for the first time in 31 years.

The US' Kathleen Baker completed the podium in 2:06.48. Lochte missed out on a chance to qualify for this US team because of a suspension for his embarrassing antics at last summer's Olympics. Nathan Adrian and Caeleb Dressel swam the first two legs of the record-setting race.

The defending champions finished more than three seconds ahead of their 2015 mark.

The Netherlands had to settle for the silver medal in 3:21.81, while Canada clinched the bronze in 3:23.55.
