Gyurta wins 200m breaststroke gold, sets world record
London, Aug 2 (IANS/RIA Novosti) Hungary's double world champion Daniel Gyurta won the 200 metres breaststroke gold Wednesday, setting a new world record.
Gyurta clocked 2 minutes, 7.28 seconds, two tenths ahead of Britain's Michael Jamieson, who took silver.
Japan's Ryo Tateishi won the bronze in 2:08.29, edging out compatriot and four-time Olympic Kosuke Kitijima into fourth.
Coming into London, Kitijima had been shooting for the so-called triple-double after winning the 100m and 200m breaststroke final at Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008.
But he finished fifth Monday in a 100m race that was won in a world record time by South Africa's Cameron Van der Burgh.
