Caeleb Dressel ties Michael Phelps world record

Not to mention, he had to find time to warm down and get to three medal ceremonies.

"I honestly didn't expect to be that close", Dressel told reporters.

The current MHSAA state record holder in the 100, 200 and 500 freestyle, Comerford was part of another American gold medal group, swimming the second leg of the US women's 800 relay team, which defeated runner-up China by more than one second.

Caeleb Dressel (USA) led the way for the Gators on Saturday, becoming the first person to win three gold medals in one day at either Worlds or the Olympics.

Mallory Comerford, who swam the third leg, said Dressel's performances in the individual finals had inspired the relay team. I don't know if I welcome them (comparisons), but I know they're going to come.

"I always think I have a shot - that's what makes me the swimmer I am. I just want to keep doing my thing at this meet and for the future".

Sweden's Sjostrom, who won the 100m butterfly world title on Monday, the day after breaking the women's 100m freestyle record in the 4x100m relay, was disappointed with silver.

"This kid is on fire!"

Joseph Schooling, the Olympic champion, won a joint bronze medal at the 100m men's butterfly final with a timing of 50.83s at the FINA World Championships on Sunday (Singapore time). "So damn fun to watch buddy!"

Comerford logged a time of 52.71 during in her 100-meter lap Saturday, and Simone Manuel's 52.18-second anchor leg gave the USA a finishing mark of 3:19.60.

He came back about a half-hour later to almost break Phelps' world record in the 100 fly, posting a time of 49.86 that was just four-hundredths off the mark set in 2009 at the rubber suit-aided championships in Rome.

Dressel began his historic evening in the men's 50m freestyle, posting a world textile best time of 21.15 seconds.

Phelps won seven gold medals at Melbourne in 2007, then one-upped himself when he bagged eight at the Beijing Olympics the following year.

But Ledecky, a D.C. area native and the star of the 2016 Olympic Games, may look back at Budapest with a little disappointment.

King won the 100m final in a new world record on Tuesday, when Efimova took bronze. "It's routine. Just get up and know that I have the work in the bank to get up and swim those times".

"The way he goes about his racing, it's really impressive". Her time of 23.67 broke the mark of 23.73, set in 2009 by Britta Steffen.

Home-crowd favourite Katinka Hosszu can win her second individual medley title of these championships in the women's 400m final. But Dressel is taking it a race at a time.

"I don't even know if he went to the Olympics a year ago", she said. Kathleen Baker of the US took bronze. "It's really impressive, really cool to see".
