Watch Finals Races From Night 7 of the 2019 FINA World Championships

2019 FINA WORLD AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Night 7 of the FINA World Championships featured 6 medal finals: the women’s 50 butterfly, men’s 50 freestyle, men’s 100 butterfly, women’s 200 backstroke, women’s 800 freestyle, and the mixed 4 x 100 freestyle relay.

The United States won 5 of the 6 gold medals on the table on night 7 of the 2019 FINA World Championships. Caeleb Dressel won three gold medals, first taking the 50 freestyle in 21.04, then the 100 butterfly in 49.66, and finally the mixed 4 x 100 freestyle relay alongside teammates Simone Manuel, Mallory Comerford, and Zach Apple, in World Record fashion.

Teen phenom Regan Smith backed up her World Record in the 200 back yesterday with a convincing victory tonight, hitting the wall in 2:03.69, the 2nd-fastest time ever.

Returning from sickness, Katie Ledecky held off Simona Quadarella and Ariarne Titmus to win gold in the 800 freestyle.

The only event the United States did not win was the women’s 50 butterfly, where Kelsi Dahlia placed 4th. Though Dahlia was out of the medals she still tied her own American Record of 25.48.
