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.

Lochte then joined the US team of Matthew Grevers, Kevin Cordes and Thomas Shields to win the 4×100-meter medley relay in 3:21.03, defeating Russia in second place and Australia in third. Lochte’s time of 45.22 seconds was the fastest on the team. AP
