    Default Swimming Worlds: Anderson clinches gold for U.S. in open water 5km

    American Haley Anderson claimed the first gold medal of the world swimming championships when she pipped Brazil's Poliana Okimoto to the line to win the women's open water 5km event on Saturday.




    The 21-year-old Anderson thrashed around two laps of the harbour course at the end of the Rambla tourist drag in the heart of Barcelona in a time of 56 minutes and 34.2 seconds on a sweltering day in the Catalan capital.
    Okimoto finished a mere 0.2 seconds back, with her compatriot Ana Cunha some 10 seconds behind in third.
    Anderson's success, her first medal at a world championships, adds to the silver medal she won as a member of the U.S. Olympic 10km open water team in London last year.
    The men's 5km event takes place later on Saturday (1100 GMT)

    Default Invincible Russians sweep Golds in synchro swimming

    Russia underlined their total dominance in the synchronised swimming programme at the world championships on Saturday by completing a sweep of all seven gold medals with victory in the free combination team event.




    After winning all seven titles at the previous world championships in Shanghai two years ago and six out of seven at both Montreal in 2007 and Rome in 2009, the 10-strong Russian team wowed spectators at the Palau Sant Jordi with a typically acrobatic routine to amass a points total of 97.060.
    Spain got the home supporters rocking with a rousing Elvis Presley-themed routine to take silver with 94.620 and Ukraine clinched bronze ahead of Japan with 92.020.
    "We did here our maximum," Svetlana Kolesnichenko, who teamed up with double solo gold medallist Svetlana Romashina to win both duet events, said.
    "We did everything that we wanted to do so it's a big mix of emotions."
    Alba Cabello, at 27 one of the senior members of the Spanish team, said she and her team mates were now looking ahead to the next Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
    With China competing in Barcelona in the solo and duet events only, Spain held off the best of the rest to take three silvers behind the Russians in the team competition.
    "If someone doubted that our team could win a medal in each event, they can look at the result and see that we've reached our target," Cabello said. "We will continue to fight for medals."

    Default 16-year-old from Lithuania powers to breaststroke record at Worlds

    Lithuania's teenage Olympic champion Ruta Meilutyte set a European and World championship record in qualifying for the 100 metres breaststroke on Monday as she chases a first world swimming gold for the Baltic nation.



    Swimming in the final heat alongside Jessica Hardy of the United States at Barcelona's hilltop Palau Sant Jordi, Meilutyte was just 0.07 outside Hardy's 2009 world record of one minute 4.45 seconds with a time of 1:04.52.
    The 16-year-old, who trains in England, beat American Rebecca Soni's world championship record of 1:04.84 set at the 2009 edition in Rome and will have a chance to improve on her time in the semi-finals later on Monday and Tuesday's final.
    Hardy was second-quickest in 1:05.18 with Russia's Yuliya Efimova third in 1:05.24 followed by Rikke Moller Pedersen of Denmark in 1:06.30.
    The two biggest names in the US women's team, teenagers Missy Franklin and Katie Ledecky, were also in qualifying action on Monday.
    Olympic champion Franklin, 18, who won gold in Sunday's 4x100 freestyle relay, was just over a second outside Briton Gemma Spofforth's world record in the 100 metres backstroke.
    The 16-year-old Ledecky, who became only the second woman to break four minutes to claim the 400 metres freestyle title on Sunday, won her heat but finished second fastest overall, just behind Denmark's Lotte Friis who won her earlier qualifier.
    HAVING FUN
    Franklin, who is swimming eight events in Barcelona including relays, said she was not focusing on breaking Spofforth's backstroke record in the semi-finals or in Tuesday's final.
    "I haven't even thought about it, I'm just going to go out there and swim and have fun," she told reporters.
    "I think when you focus too much on a number you kind of lose what swimming is all about. So I'm just going to go out there and see what I can do."
    Ledecky smiled when asked if the world record would fall in Tuesday's 1,500 metres final.
    "We'll see," she said. "I definitely have a lot left in the tank," she told reporters.
    "I carried the excitement and energy from last night into this morning and recovered really well."
    Briton Robbie Renwick was quickest in the men's 200 metres freestyle heats ahead of Nicolas Oliveira of Brazil and Dutchman Sebastiaan Verschuren, with heavyweights Yannick Agnel of France and American Ryan Lochte also going through.
    Australia's Ashley Delaney topped qualifying in the 100 metres backstroke, followed by American David Plummer and Xu Jiayu of China.
