Ben Proud在50米自由泳決賽中表現出色,為英國贏得了世界游泳錦標賽的第一枚金牌。

美國的邁克爾-安德魯獲得第二名,法國的馬克西姆-格魯塞特獲得第三名。

"27歲的Proud說:"能站在領獎台上,這真的很特別。

"如果你在本周初說,我將贏得這個冠軍,我不會相信你。我很激動。"

美國人凱蒂-萊德基創造了歷史,她在女子決賽中以優勢表現連續第五次贏得800米自由泳世界冠軍。

這位25歲的選手以8分8秒的成績鎖定了勝利--比她去年在東京奧運會上獲得金牌的時間快了4秒,是歷史上第五快的成績。

澳大利亞的Kiah Melverton獲得第二名,意大利的Simona Quadarella獲得第三名,她落後萊德基10秒。

"這總是很難的,你希望它受傷,特別是在周末,"萊德基說。"我對這個結果真的很滿意,對未來真的很興奮。"

萊德基本周已經在400米和1500米自由泳中贏得了兩枚個人金牌,另外還與美國隊在4x200米自由泳接力中獲得了團體冠軍。

自2013年以來,她在五屆世錦賽上共獲得了22枚獎牌。

在男子50米自由泳決賽中,普魯德迅速起跑,為自己贏得了對其他選手的強大優勢,並以21.32秒的成績獲得勝利。英國選手Lewis Burras獲得第七名。

"Proud說:"這是為家裡的每個人頒發的獎牌。"在過去12個月裡讓我過關的每個人--我只想對大家說聲謝謝。"

五年前,Proud在同一泳池的世錦賽上取得了令人震驚的50米蝶泳冠軍,他說再次在匈牙利首都參加比賽 "很高興"。

他補充說:"這是一場偉大的比賽和偉大的領域;真的很高興。布達佩斯是一個美麗的地方,偉大的粉絲,真的很高興。"

澳大利亞在混合4x100米自由泳決賽中創造了3分19.38秒的新世界紀錄,傑克-卡特賴特、凱爾-錢伯斯、麥迪遜-威爾遜和莫莉-奧卡拉漢收穫了該國在本次比賽中的第六枚金牌。

曾連續三次贏得該賽事的美國隊--也是以世界紀錄的時間--只能獲得第三名。加拿大獲得了銀牌。

瑞典選手Sarah Sjostrom連續第四次獲得女子50米蝶泳金牌,而匈牙利選手Kristof Milak在男子100米蝶泳比賽中獲勝,受到了主場球迷的熱烈歡迎。

Ben Proud won Great Britain's first gold medal of the World Aquatic Championships with an impressive performance in the 50m freestyle final.

Michael Andrew of the United States finished second, with Maxime Grousset of France in third place.

"To come top of the podium, it's really special," said 27-year-old Proud.

"If you said at the start of the week, I was going to win this, I wouldn't have believed you. I'm thrilled."

American Katie Ledecky made history by winning her fifth consecutive 800m freestyle world title with a dominant display in the women's final.

The 25-year-old sealed victory with a time of eight minutes and eight seconds - four seconds faster than her gold medal time at the Tokyo Olympic Games last year and the fifth fastest of all time.

Kiah Melverton of Australia, who finished second ahead of Italy's Simona Quadarella in third, was 10 seconds behind Ledecky.

"It's always hard, you want it to hurt, especially at the end of the week," said Ledecky. "I'm really happy with that result and really excited for the future."

Ledecky had already won two individual gold medals this week in both the 400m and 1500m freestyle, plus a team title with the USA in the 4x200m freestyle relay.

She now has a tally of 22 medals across five World Championships since 2013.

In the men's 50m freestyle final Proud made a rapid start off the blocks to give himself a strong advantage over the rest of the field, and claimed victory with a time of 21.32 seconds. GB's Lewis Burras finished seventh.

"This is a medal for everyone back at home," Proud said. "Everyone who has got me past the last 12 months - I just have to say thank you to everyone."

Five years ago, Proud pulled off a shock 50m butterfly win at the World Championships in the same pool and said it was "great to be racing" in the Hungarian capital once again.

He added: "It was a great race and great field; really happy with that. Budapest is a beautiful place, great fans and really chuffed."

Australia clocked a new world record of three minutes 19.38 seconds in the final of the mixed 4x100m freestyle as Jack Cartwright, Kyle Chambers, Madison Wilson and Mollie O'Callaghan collected the country's sixth gold medal of the competition.

The United States, who had won the event on three consecutive occasions - also with a world record time - could only manage third place. Canada finished with the silver medal.

Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom took the women's 50m butterfly gold medal for the fourth time in a row, while Hungarian swimmer Kristof Milak was given a rousing reception by the home fans as he won the men's 100m butterfly.
