BARCELONA---Missy Franklin got
back to winning at the world swim-
ming championships, and now she s
joined a very elite club.
Franklin won her fifth gold medal of
the championships with an easy victory
in the 200-metre backstroke yesterday,
tying the record for most titles by a
woman at the biennial world meet.
The 18-year-old American has one
event remaining---the 400 medley
relay---and a chance to join Michael
Phelps, Mark Spitz and Kristin Otto as
the only swimmers to win as many as
six golds at the worlds or the Olympics.
"That was awesome," said Franklin,
who has already bettered her perform-
ance at the London Olympics, where
she won four golds and a bronze. "The
200 back is my favorite race, but it s
probably my most painful."
Katie Ledecky, only 16, wrapped-up
a brilliant meet with her fourth gold
medal and second world record, this
time in the 800 freestyle. The youngster,
who hopes to get her driving permit
when she returns home, turned it on
over the final laps to win in 8 minutes,
Powering to the finish as though she
was in a sprint, not the last of 16 laps,
Ledecky took down the mark of 8:14.10
set by Britain s Rebecca Adlington at
the 2008 Olympics.
Lotte Friis of Denmark set the early
pace but simply couldn t keep up when
Ledecky put it in another gear, a repeat
of their race in the 1,500 where the
teenager broke the previous record by
more than 6 seconds.
Friis settled for another silver, and
New Zealand s Lauren Boyle claimed
the bronze---the same order as the
When Ledecky climbed out of the
pool, Friis pointed at the youngster and
applauded, certainly a worthy gesture
toward someone who is unbeaten in
swimming s two major events.
Ledecky won the 800 free at the
London Olympics, her international
debut, and went 4 for 4 Barcelona,
nearly breaking a world record in the
400 free and leading off the U.S. victory
in the 800 free relay.
"It s good to finish off on a great
note," Ledecky said. "I exceeded all the
expectations I had going into this meet."
Franklin matched the record held by
Tracy Caulkins of the U.S., who won
five times at the 1978 worlds in Berlin,
and Libby Trickett of Australia, who
did it at her home championships in
Melbourne six years ago.
Bouncing back from a fourth-place
finish in the 100 freestyle, Franklin won
with a time of 2:04.76. Belinda Hocking
of Australia took the silver, more than
a body length behind Franklin, while
Canada s Hilary Caldwell claimed the
If Franklin was hurting, it sure didn t
show. Midway through the race, she
had already pulled out to a comfortable
lead. Everyone else was chasing the
other two spots on the podium. She
was chasing history.
"I couldn t have ever imagined this
coming into the meet," Franklin said.
"It s nice knowing after London that
I was still able to motivate myself, and
all that work that I put in this past year
has still really been worth it."
Meanwhile, after an epic night of
swimming, Ryan Lochte finally ran out
of gas on his 29th birthday.
He had the top time coming into the
final of the 100 butterfly, but managed
only a sixth-place finish. Chad le Clos
won the gold, leaving no doubt he is
the new king of the fly as long as
Michael Phelps stays in retirement. The
personable South African touched in
51.06, completing a sweep of the 100
and the 200 in Barcelona. Laszlo Cseh
of Hungary claimed the silver, while
Poland s Konrad Czerniak picked up
The previous night, Lochte pulled
off a stunning triple, winning two gold
medals and setting a personal best in
the 100 fly semifinals. But he couldn t
match it in the final, trailing all the way
and finishing in 51.58---a tenth of a sec-
ond slower than the previous day, even
though he was better rested.
"I don t know if it had an effect, the
triple last night, but I just didn t have
it," Lochte said. "I felt very good the
whole race until the very end, and I
got very short and choppy on my stroke
and I just fell apart. But 100 fly, it s the
first time swimming it internationally.
I m still learning how to swim that
event, but I m going to keep trying it
every year and hopefully I get better."
Brazil s Cesar Cielo won his third
straight world title in the 50 free.
Despite undergoing surgery on both
knees after the Olympics, and not even
bothering to enter the 100 free, Cielo
showed he s still the man to beat in the
furious, foamy dash from one end of
the pool to the other. His time was
21.32, edging Russia s Vladimir Morozov
by 0.15. The bronze went to George
Bovell of Trinidad.
In a star-studded final, Nathan Adri-
an of the U.S. managed only fourth,
reigning Olympic champion Florent
Manaudou was fifth, and American
Anthony Ervin sixth.
Cielo celebrated wildly, screaming
and pumping his fists while straddling
a lane rope. Then, as always, the tears
flowed freely while the rousing Brazilian
anthem played and his country s flag
was raised toward the roof of the Palau
Jeanette Ottesen Gray of Denmark
won gold in the 50 butterfly, a non-
Olympic event. She touched in 25.24.
China s Lu Ying claimed the silver,
while the bronze went to Ranomi Kro-
mowidjojo of the Netherlands. Amer-
ican Dana Vollmer finished last in the
Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania broke a
world record that was set only hours
earlier in the women s 50 breaststroke.
