American Ariana Kukors claimed the gold and a new world record at the women's 200m individual medley, becoming the first women to break the 2:07mark.

Her compatriot Rebecca Soni broke the women's 100m breaststroke record in the semifinals, while Russian Anastasia Zueva pulled off a new world mark in the women's 100m backstroke.
