Missy Franklin would have won bronze if she repeated her preliminary time, which was a personal best. Still, she was smiling after the race. Franklin won’t win seven medals, but she still is likely to win six golds, which no woman has done at a world championships. Australia wins both the 100 freestyle world titles at the same world championships for the first time. Cate Campbell was .61 seconds under world-record pace at the 50-meter mark. She finished behind the world mark of 52.07. Sarah Sjostrom adds silver to her 100 butterfly gold. Bronze medalist¬†Ranomi Kromowidjojo was the 2012 Olympic champion.
