RYAN LOCHTE won two more races at the short-course world championships in Istanbul on Sunday, finishing the event with six golds and one silver. The result matched his medal total from the last championships, in Dubai in 2010.
Lochte won the 100-meter individual medley, a day after he broke the world record in the event. The five-time Olympic champion finished in 51.21 seconds, ahead of Kenneth To of Australia and George Bovell III of Trinidad and Tobago.
To started well and led at the halfway mark. He held off Lochte over the breaststroke leg, but the American accelerated in the freestyle to move ahead.
Lochte then joined the U.S. team of Matthew Grevers, Kevin Cordes and Thomas Shields to win the 4 x 100-meter medley relay in 3:21.03, with Russia second and Australia third.
He also won silver in the 200 backstroke.
