Day of doubles: open water-pool for Wellbrock, 4th straight IM 200-400 for Hosszu, two titles in an hour for Manuel

The last day of the championships offered some truly heroic efforts as well as historical milestones. Germany’s Florian Wellbrock became the first swimmer winning gold in the open water and the pool at the same edition, while Katinka Hosszu made the IM-double for the fourth time at the World Championships in a row (and she become the first female and only the second after Michael Phelps to win five titles in the same event at the Worlds).

Gold bless America: 3 titles for Dressel, wins for Ledecky, Regan

Caeleb Dressel’s busiest day ended up in a golden treble: he clinched the title in the 50m free, the 100m fly and the mixed 4x100m free relay. In the first two he clocked incredible times again while in the last one team USA set a new World Record. It was an almost all-American evening as Katie Ledecky bounced back from her illness to claim her 4th straight title in the 800m free while Regan Smith was a class above the rest in the 200m back.
