Michael Phelps (Baltimore, Md.) claimed his sixth gold medal of the 2008 Olympic Games by winning the men's 200m individual medley in a world record time of 1:54.23, breaking his own mark set in Omaha, Neb., on July 4 by 0.57 seconds.

The silver medal went to Laszlo Cseh of Hungary with a time of 1:56.52, 2.29 seconds off Phelps' pace and a mere 0.01 ahead of Ryan Lochte (Daytona Beach, Fla.), who won the bronze medal. It was Lochte's second medal of the morning after winning the 200m backstroke gold a half-hour prior.
