Lochte's bid for 8 golds over

2010-12-15 20:33

Dubai - Ryan Lochte's bid for eight gold medals ended when the United States relay squad failed to even finish on the podium on the opening night of the short-course world championships.

Lochte opened the night with a dominant win in the 200 meters Wednesday, but the U.S. fell behind after Nathan Adrian's opening leg in the relay and Lochte had too much time to make up when he dove in for the anchor leg.

Meanwhile, China set the first swimming world record of 2010, winning the women's 800 freestyle relay.

While world records fell by the dozens in 2008 and 2009, no marks had been set this year after rubberized bodysuits were outlawed.

There still has been no individual mark set in either the long- or short-course pool.
