Lochte bags No. 6

09:53 PM December 17, 2012

ISTANBUL—Ryan Lochte won two more races at the short-course world championships in Turkey on Sunday, finishing the event with six golds and one silver.

The result matched the medal tally of the United States’ strongest swimmer when the biennial championships were held 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.
