SchoolingLeClos-940x580

The top-ranked Sjostrom had cut a disconsolate figure after missing out on 100m freestyle gold on Friday but she returned brilliantly to win the 50m butterfly final, recording the fastest ever indoor time of 24.60 seconds and touching 0.17 seconds outside of the world record she set at an outdoorevent in Sweden three years ago. "There's no other way to say it".

In the span of two hours on Saturday, Dressel won the 50-meter freestyle, the 100-meter butterfly, and was part of a victorious mixed 4x100 free relay team. Until now. The sprinter hailing from Jacksonville, Florida has certainly used this year's World Championships in Budapest to his advantage as a stepping stone to bud into the biggest name in US Swimming these days.

Caeleb Dressel, Nathan Adrian, Mallory Comerford and Simone Manuel competed in the final and took gold for the US with a new world record, 3 minutes, 19.60 seconds.

Dressel has emerged as the breakout performer of the championships, with a bit of help from the relatively new mixed relays.

"It's been a long meet so hopefully I'll finish on a high note, that's my plan", the 23-year-old said. The 2019 World Championships will be in Gwangju, South Korea and the 2020 Summer Games will be held in Tokyo.

And Schooling has found the going tough in recent races.

Compatriot Schooling, however, remains focused on the World Championships, after reaching the semi-finals as the fourth quickest qualifier.

He paid tribute to the American, saying: "There are just no words to describe what he just did".

"This is my first world championship, so I'm so excited to be here, and I'm just having fun racing and learning from the greatest swimmers in the entire world", Comerford said in a press conference after the race. "It gives me something to work on for the next few years". "The most important thing for him is to go back to the fundamentals, and working with Reese to do what needs to be done".

Phelps retired for the second time after the Rio Games.

Caeleb Dressel was set to finish the world championships yesterday with an historic seventh gold medal in Budapest, as home-favorite Katinka Hosszu bids to live up to her "Iron Lady" nickname.

South African Chad Le Clos is the defending champion in the event and is coming off a win in the 200m fly on Wednesday (26 July).

As with all his previous medals, Schooling will hand over this one to his parents to store in his father's office cabinet. The US team did all the race in the lead, winning the fourth gold of the day out of the six finals contested at the Duna Arena.

The runner-up in the men's 100m butterfly was Hungary's Kristof Milak in 50.62. He also won bronze in the 100m fly at the 2015 edition in Russian Federation.
