To the pool for the FINA Short Course World Swimming Championships in Windsor, Canada. China's Wang Shun was competing in the men's 100m Individual Medley hoping to build on his gold medal success in the 200 meter version of the event. That success made him the first male to win an individual medley world title from his country.
Wang picked up a bronze at this year's Rio Olympics in the men's 200 meter individual medley. The 22-year-old continued his good year in the water by winning that elusive gold in the same event Wednesday.

Here he's in the 7th lane in the 100 meters and after 50 meters trails the leader, Michael Andrew.

The Chinese looks to be struggling during the race having recently recovered from a cold.

In the final 25 meters, he is surpassed by two Japanese swimmers which places him 4th overall with a time of 52.21. The American Andrew gets the gold in 51.84 seconds.

USA wins sliver medal with Japan finishing in third

There would be no time for sulking however with Wang in competition in the 4x200 meter Freestyle Relay final shortly afterwards.

The Russian team is fastest to win the gold with a time of 6 minutes and 52.10 seconds. USA is over a second behind in the runners up spot with China way off the pace in seventh.
