Ryan Lochte (USA) sets first WR in Istanbul


AKUATIK INDONESIA. On day 3 at the 11th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m), the first World Record was established by Ryan Lochte (USA) in the men’s 200m individual medley tonight. The swimming star touched first in 1:49.63, becoming the first to complete the distance in less than 1:50 minutes. The day was also highlighted by four Championships Records: two set by Nicholas Santos (BRA) in the heats (22.40, equalled) and the semis (22.23) of the men’s 50m butterfly: one from Daniel Gyurta (HUN), who brilliantly won the men’s 200m breaststroke in 2:01.35, and a fourth set by teammate Katinka Hosszu in the women’s 100m IM (58.49).
With so many successes, Hungary is presently second in the championships’ medal table, totalling seven medals (three gold, one silver and three bronze). Team USA dominates the chart with a total 17 awards (7, 4, 6) – besides Lochte’s gold, USA earned three silver and two bronze medals throughout the evening’s session.
The day was also prolific for the German team, with Britta Steffen's win in the women’s 100m free and Paul Biederman's victory in the men’s 400m free. The remaining titles went to Denmark in the women’s 4x100m medley relay (the country has already earned five medals in Istanbul), to Vladimir Morozov (RUS) in a thrilling men’s 50m free final, to Spain’s Melanie Costa Schmid in the women’s 400m free (marked by the absence of WR holder Camille Muffat), to China’s Ying Lu in the 'lottery' of the women’s 50m butterfly, and to Daryna Zevina (UKR), winning the women’s 200m backstroke in convincing fashion.
