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

Chinese swimming ace Sun Yang, who has withdrawn from the men's 1,500m freestyle, will compete in the men's 4x100m medley relay on Sunday, according to the Chinese swimming team.

Already the star of the meeting after becoming the first man to win three golds in a single session on Saturday, Dressel picked up yet another title 24 hours later as part of his country's men's 4x100-metre medley relay team.

Sjostrom also set a new world record in the semi-finals of the 50m freestyle with a time of 23.67sec bettering the old mark of 23.73sec set by Germany's Britta Steffen in 2009.

The race brought down the curtain on a world championship that was far and away the most successful in Northeast Florida's swimming history.

Great Britain's Ben Proud secured bronze in 21.43. Schooling's time yesterday was almost half a second slower than his Olympic record of 50.39sec, but he still remains the only Singaporean to win a medal at the World Championships. That time was just 0.04 seconds shy of Phelps' benchmark and ensured Dressel took gold by a huge margin from Hungarian teenager Kristof Milak (50.62 seconds), as Joseph Schooling and James Guy (both 50.83 seconds) shared bronze. Dressel swam the first 100m in an excellent time of 47.22, and then was followed by Nathan Adrian, University or Louisville swimmer, Mallory Comerford and Simone Manuel.

Thanks Mauricio Pochettino - Spanish Shot-Stopper Full of Praise For Spurs Boss
Walker's departure aside, Spurs have retained the same squad that finished second to Chelsea in the league last season. More than one or two big money signings are struggling to make their way into Pochettino's good graces.

The time recorded by American Dressel, Schooling's former Bolles School team-mate, was faster than the Olympic record time 50.39 Schooling posted in winning gold in Rio previous year.

Despite the physical and mental toll of winning three world golds within 90 minutes, Dressel is relaxed before Sunday's final day.

He could have won the silver medal at the Rio Olympic Games with the same result.

It secures her a third consecutive world crown in the event having also triumphed at Barcelona 2013 and Kazan 2015. Japan's Kosuke Hagino claimed the silver, with the bronze going to China's Wang Shun.

It was 0.17 shy of the world record she registered at the 2014 Swedish Championships in Boras.

Manafort could be excused from the hearing by agreeing to the "production of documents and a transcribed interview", they said. Investigators are also probing whether Manafort engaged in money laundering, according to The Wall Street Journal .

Seebohm held off home favourite Katinka Hosszú, the silver medallist in 2:05.85. Kathleen Baker of the US took bronze.

The semi-finals was set to take place later on Friday."I thought I was reading the board wrong, it's the craziest thing", the 20-year-old told reporters.

That took his total to six, prompting much talk of him and Phelps, and he duly obliged on the final night of action, swimming the butterfly leg in 49.76 as the United States won in 3:27.91, Dressel winning his fourth relay of the competition.

Second after yesterday's first round of dives, Iffland was rewarded for her consistency throughout the last three rounds to register an unrivalled total of 320.70 points.
