Dressel on verge of worlds' magnificent seven

Dressel on verge of worlds' magnificent seven

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 USA a first-place finish.

Three races. Three more gold medals to load onto the flight back to Green Cove Springs.

Russian Federation were third in 3:29.76, Danila Izotov anchoring the quartet with a 46.69 freestyle leg.

"I had confidence in the training I had done and in my performance going into the race".

Kalisz, meanwhile, extended American rule of the 200-meter individual medley, rallying to claim his first major worldwide championship.

The breakout star of this world meet, Dressel not only eclipsed his former club mate to claim gold in 49.86sec, but also emerged as the front-runner to eventually break Michael Phelps' world record of 49.82sec. I think of that moment every single day.

King won the 100m final in a new world record on Tuesday, when Efimova took bronze. I got my a** kicked.

"He's a great kid, he's real smart, he has to learn on his own", he said.

"He was so successful at the Olympics that it's hard to keep going in that grinding everyday workout fashion, especially the year after the Olympics".

Sjostrom's time in the semi-finals broke the previous mark of 23.73 seconds set by Germany's Britta Steffen in 2009.

At Least 70 Afghan Villagers Kidnapped By Suspected Taliban Fighters, Seven Killed
As per the recent reports, at least 13 militants have been reportedly killed in an airstrike in Afghanistan on Sunday. It wasn't immediately clear if they had been kidnapped or had escaped.

Amid a cacophony of noise, Seebohm shut out the pressure to clock two minutes 05.68 seconds, an Oceanic record, as her final arm stretch was enough to hold off local hope Katinka Hosszu by 0.17 seconds.

Dressel has made plenty of statements at Budapest but the one that made Chalmers take notice was his scorching 47.17 second 100m freestyle winning time.

"I don't even know if he went to the Olympics a year ago", she said.

"Phelps' feat still stands supreme since five of his seven golds were in individual events, and he didn't have the benefit of the mixed relays", the AP notes.

Marsh was the head coach of the US women's team at the Rio Olympics and served as a men's assistant coach for the 2012, 2000 and 1996 US Olympic teams.

"It's insane", Dressel said.

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.

"That last relay was a lot of fun", Dressel said.

"I won't talk about a comeback, if I'm fourth or fifth tomorrow that's how it is - I want to talk about medals". "It's back-to-back events, it's physically demanding and mentally it's even more straining". "I'll give myself 30 minutes tonight to, I guess, let it sink in a bit, then it's time to refocus for that relay tomorrow".
