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

His other gold medal was in the 400 freestyle relay last Sunday.

The 1.91m Dressel had won four golds (50m freestyle, 100m free, 4x100m free and mixed medley) and now owns the fastest time in a textile suit for the 100m fly, leapfrogging Schooling as the man most likely to eclipse Phelps' world record of 49.82 sec.

Kopelev, the European champion in the 50m back from 2012, also finished eighth in the world final in 2013 and was 11th overall in the semis two years ago.

Ledecky, the most decorated female swimmer in world championships' history, was the fastest into the women's 800m freestyle final. He tied Great Britain's James Guy to share bronze after qualifying fourth in Friday's semifinals. The silver medal was bagged by Kristof Milak from Hungary with a timing of 50.62s.

Dressel led off Nathan Adrian, Mallory Comerford and Simone Manuel on a United States team that swam 3:19.60 to shatter the world record ahead of the Netherlands and Canada.

The 20-year-old touched home for the win in 8:12.68, which was 7.89 slower than the world record she set en route to victory at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Divided Senate opens 'Obamacare' debate
Then a so-called "vote-a-rama" begins, opening the floodgates for all senators to introduce as many amendments as they want. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., voted Wednesday against repealing the law without a working bill to take its place.

Comerford said she was grateful her US coaches believed in her enough to select her for the race's opening leg in a field full of record holders and Olympic medalists. Japan's Kosuke Hagino claimed the silver, with the bronze going to China's Wang Shun.

However, his time of 22.95sec in the final was good enough only for fifth position, as Briton Benjamin Proud won the event in 22.75sec on Tuesday. The previous global mark had been achieved in Kazan 2015, also by the U.S. in 3:23.05. The title went to American star Katie Ledecky, her 14th gold medal in total at the World Championships.

Sjostrom, the victor of the 100m butterfly event in Hungary's capital, was the only swimmer to dip under 25sec.

In March, he lost both his 100-yard and 200-yard fly titles at the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Championships and did not win an individual title for the first time since he started college in 2014.

Hungary's "Iron Lady" took silver in the women's 200m breaststroke final on Saturday behind Australia's Emily Seebohm. Kathleen Baker of the USA took bronze.

It bettered the previous mark of 23.73 set by Germany's Britta Steffen at Rome 2009.
