Istanbul - Ryan Lochte captured his fifth gold medal at the short-course world championships in Turkey by winning the 100m individual medley on Sunday, 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.

Earlier on Sunday, the American won silver in the 200m backstroke.

Lochte broke the world record in the 100 IM with a time of 50.71 in the semi-finals on Saturday, eclipsing the mark set by Peter Mankoc of Slovenia in December 2009. On Friday, the American star broke the world record in the 200 IM.
