Lochte won the 100-meter individual medley, a day after he broke the world record in the event. The five-time Olympic champion finished in 51.21 seconds, ahead of Kenneth To of Australia and George Bovell III of Trinidad and Tobago.

Lochte then joined U.S. teammates Matthew Grevers, Kevin Cordes and Thomas Shields to win the 4x100-meter medley relay in 3:21.03, with Russia second and Australia third. Lochte's time of 45.22 seconds was the fastest on the team.
