Ryan Lochte Sets Short Course World Record
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Ryan Lochte has set another world record at the short-course world championships. The American added the 200 individual medley mark to his 400 record a day earlier.

Lochte's two marks represent the only individual world records set in 2010, in short or long course, after high-tech bodysuits were banned at the beginning of the year. Nearly every record was broken multiple times the previous two years.

Lochte finished in 1 minute, 50.08 seconds Friday. He improved on the previous mark set by South Africa's Darian Townsend by nearly 1.5 seconds.

Lochte finished more than two body lengths ahead of Markus Rogan of Austria, who touched 2.82 seconds later. Tyler Clary of the U.S. was third, 3.48 behind.
