United States swimmer Caeleb Dressel makes history with three-gold night at worlds

United States swimmer Caeleb Dressel makes history with three-gold night at worlds

At 6:15, he did it again.

The University of Florida student - yep, he's got an algebra exam coming up Monday that he'll be taking online - has won six golds medals in Budapest.

But even the Swedish star took note of Dressel's performance.

The 19-year-old University of Louisville sophomore swam the third leg on the USA gold-medal-winning 400-meter mixed-freestyle relay team, which beat the event's previous world record by more than three seconds.

The 20-year-old could win a seventh of these championships in the men's 4x100m medley relay yesterday - the final event in Budapest.

"It's unbelievable man", said Nathan Adrian, who swam America's second leg on Saturday.

'Ready Player One' Trailer Breakdown Explains the Iron Giant and 80s References
Whether any of them made the final cut or not can be seen when Ready Player One finally reaches theatres on March 30th, 2018. The futuristic movie features such 80s icons as The Iron Giant , Freddie Krueger, and the DeLorean from Back to the Future .

Meanwhile, Culture, Community and Youth Minister Grace Fu has congratulated Schooling on winning the 100m fly bronze.

But the day belonged to Dressel, who now holds the undisputed title as the world's top sprinter.

Camille Lacourt won France a belated first gold in the men's 50m backstroke, home favourite Katinka Hosszu continued her dominance of the women's 400m individual medley and Gregorio Paltrinieri retained his title in the men's 1500m freestyle. Great Britain ranks second with four.

Caeleb Dressel won his seventh gold medal of the World Championships as the US claimed the medley relay, thereby matching the previous record title haul of Michael Phelps who achieved that feat in Melbourne in 2007.

Some 34 minutes later, he followed by swimming away with the 100 fly, a race that was never in doubt.

Dressel's time is faster than Schooling's winning time of 50.39s in the same event at the Olympics. That time was just 0.04 seconds shy of Phelps' benchmark and ensured Dressel took gold by a huge margin from Hungarian teenager Kristof Milak (50.62 seconds), as Joseph Schooling and James Guy (both 50.83 seconds) shared bronze.

Red Sox pitcher David Price going on disabled list, reports say
Since returning from that injury, Price has a 5-3 record and 3.82 ERA in 11 starts this season since returning on May 29. We'll have more when the Red Sox name a replacement starter and determine what happens next with Price.

Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, won seven gold medals at the world championships in Melbourne 10 years ago.

An hour and a medal ceremony later, he ended his day in the mixed free relay.

On his own race, the Singaporean said: "I am disappointed, I had a long finish and was half a second slower than my personal best". "It was such a blast".

He already has big plans for Australia's 4x200m freestyle relay team at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

Great Britain, led by breaststroke record-holder Adam Peaty, and a well-balanced Russian Federation appear to be the primary threats.

The final relay was merely a coronation, the Americans romping to gold in 3 minutes, 19.60 seconds - eclipsing by almost 3 1/2 seconds the mark they set two years ago at worlds.

Why the New York Times wants an apology from Fox News
Several media outlets reported about it at the time , including the Times and Fox News. President Donald Trump comments on the "Fox & Friends" segment in a tweet on Saturday.

Ledecky, the most decorated female swimmer in world championships' history, was the fastest into the women's 800m freestyle final.
