Open water swimming[edit]

Lurz was the most decorated open water swimmer with three medals.

The open water swimming competition featured 7 events (3 male, 3 female, and a team competition with male and female competitors). The open water swimming competition was contested at the Jinshan City Beach from July 19–23. Germany came out on top in the gold medal count in the open water swimming competition with one gold, two silvers, and one bronze.

On the first day of competition on July 19, British Keri-Anne Payne won the first gold of the open water competition in the women's 10 km. On the second day of competition, Greek Spyridon Gianniotis won the gold in the men's 10 km, finishing ahead of German Thomas Lurz.

On the fifth and last day of competition, two events were held, the men's and women's 25 km. In the men's 25 km, Bulgarian Petar Stoychev won the gold in a time of 5:10:39.8. In the women's 25 km, Brazilian Ana Marcela Cunha won the gold in a time of 5:29:22.9. Four women and 10 men who started the 25 km competition did not complete the race because water temperatures reached what FINA says is an unsafe level for competition.

Swimming[edit]

The swimming competition featured races in a long course (50 m) pool in 40 events (20 for males, 20 for females; 17 individual events and 3 relays for each gender). The events were held at the Shanghai Oriental Sports Center from July 24–31. The United States lead the gold medal count in the swimming competition with sixteen golds. Overall, the United States came out on top in the swimming competition with twenty-nine medals. A total of two world records were set during the swimming competition. Just two years ago, at the 2009 World Aquatics Championships in Rome, 43 world records were set. This is attributed to high-tech bodysuits being banned in January 2010.

American Ryan Lochte won the most gold medals among the male competitors with five and was named the best male swimmer of the championships. American Rebecca Soni won a total of three golds and one bronze medal and was named the best female swimmer of the championships. American Michael Phelps had the most overall medals in the competition with seven (four golds, two silvers, one bronze).

Because of Heemskerk's 100 m split of 52.46, the Dutch were able to overcome the United States on the final leg.[6] Next in the men's 4×100 m freestyle relay, the Australian team of James Magnussen, Matthew Targett, Matthew Abood, and Eamon Sullivan won the gold in a time of 3:11.00.[7] Magnussen jolted the Australians ahead in the first leg with a split of 47.49. American Michael Phelps (whose team finished third) had the second-best start with a 48.08. After the race, Phelps said of Magnussen, "He's talented, he's young. I think it's going to make it exciting for the sport and add something else to that relay, that's for sure." No new world or competition records were set during day one.

Day two[edit]

Cielo won gold in the 50 m butterfly on day two.

On the second day of competition on July 25, four finals were contested, the women's 100 m butterfly, men's 50 m butterfly, women's 200 m individual medley, and the men's 100 m breaststroke. In the first final of day two, the women's 100 m butterfly, American Dana Vollmer won the gold after posting the top times in the heats and semifinals. Vollmer's winning time of 56.87 was slower than her semifinal time of 56.47 but was still good enough for gold.[8] In the men's 50 m butterfly, Brazilian César Cielo, just recently cleared to compete after failing a drug test, won in a time of 23.10. Cielo was very emotional after the race and sobbed uncontrollably. After he said, "This gold medal has a different feel from the other ones. This one was the hardest of my life." In the women's 200 m individual medley, fifteen-year-old Chinese Ye Shiwen won the gold in a time of 2:08.90 to give host nation China its first gold in the swimming competition. At the 150 mark, Ye was in fifth place but covered the last 50 metres in 29.42 to surge ahead of American Ariana Kukors and Australian Alicia Coutts for the win.[9] In the men's 100 m breaststroke Norwegian Alexander Dale Oen won the gold in a time of 58.71.[10] After the race, he pointed to the Norwegian flag on his swimming cap in reference to the 2011 Norway attacks. No new world or competition records were set during day two.

After the race, Magnussen said, "When I get back to Australia, I will be relaxing with my friends, and it will sound amazing to be called a world champion. It has been six weeks since I have gotten a good night's sleep. No Australian has won this race at the world championships before, so it is good to be in the same club as the legends of this sport." Defending champion César Cielo finished in fourth place after fading badly the last 15 meters with a time of 48.01.[18] In the women's 200 m butterfly, Chinese Jiao Liuyang won her first individual world title with a time of 2:05.55, just holding off Brit Ellen Gandy who finished second in 2:05.59.[19] In the women's 50 m backstroke, Russian Anastasia Zuyeva won the gold in a time of 27.79.[20] In the women's 4×200 m freestyle relay, the American team of Missy Franklin, Dagny Knutson, Katie Hoff, and Allison Schmitt won the gold with a time of 7:46.14.

It was Lochte's sixth medal of the competition and his fifth gold. After the race, Lochte said, "I'm so glad this meet is over ... It has been a long, long eight days. For the most part, I'm not really happy. I mean, it's definitely great to have won five golds, but I know I can go a lot faster." American Tyler Clary earned a silver behind Lochte, repeating his 2009 result.[34] In the women's 50 m freestyle, Swede Therese Alshammar won the gold in a time of 24.14.

I will work hard to prepare for next year's Olympics."[36] In the men's 1500 m freestyle, Chinese Sun Yang set the second world record of the competition en route to winning gold with a time of 14:34.14, improving Australian Grant Hackett's 2001 record of 14:34.56 and improving on the bronze medal he got two years ago. After the race, Sun said, "With the London Games a year out, I will have to be more strict with myself and start back at zero. Hopefully, I can create miracles at the Olympics."[37] Prior to this, Hackett's record was the longest standing record unbroken even with the "supersuits" of 2009.[38] In the women's 400 m individual medley, American Elizabeth Beisel won her first ever world championship gold with a time of 4:31.78. Second-place finisher Brit Hannah Miley finished over two seconds behind with a time of 4:34.22.[39] In the final event of day eight, the men's 4×100 m medley relay, the American team of Nick Thoman, Mark Gangloff, Michael Phelps, and Nathan Adrian won the gold with a time of 3:32.06. At the 300 metre mark, the Australian team was in fourth place but James Magnussen has a split of 47.00 to get his team second place in 3:32.26.[40] One world record, set by Sun in the 1500 m freestyle, was set during day eight.
