|Katie Ledecky of the US reacts following her world record breaking swim in the women's 1 Comprar Nike Air Max 95 Negras ,500 meters freestyle final in Gold Coast, Australia on Sunday. Photo: AFP American teenager Katie Ledecky broke her second world record in less than 24 hours while Michael Phelps suffered a rare defeat at the Pan Pacific Championships in Australia on Sunday.
Ledecky hacked almost six seconds off her 1,500 meters freestyle world mark Comprar Nike Air Max Negras , which she set in Texas in June, when she charged through the 30-lap event in 15 minutes 28.36 seconds.
The 17-year-old finished almost half a minute ahead of her nearest rival - an almost unimaginable margin in a sport where medals are often decided by hundredths of seconds - to collect her fifth title of the championships.
Ledecky broke her 400 meters world record on Saturday and came within a whisker of eclipsing her 800 meters world best on Thursday.
She also won the 200 meters individual event and anchored the US to victory in the 4x200 meters to emerge as the biggest winner of the four-day meet at Australia's Gold Coast.
"That was probably one of my most painful races, I don't know whether to throw up or not Comprar Nike Air Max 90 Blancas ," Ledecky told reporters.
"But it paid off in the end. Pretty early on it felt like I was on world record pace.
"I was pretty sure I had it. Still, six seconds is pretty surprising."
Ledecky's performances have caught the eye of Phelps, who said Comprar Nike Air Max TN Blancas , "She's a stud. Watching her swim, it's remarkable."
Phelps picked up his third gold medal of the meet when he helped the US win the men's 4x100 meters medley relay after he was surprisingly beaten in the 200 meters individual medley, an event he had won at the last three Olympic Games before his short-lived retirement after London 2012.
Still struggling to find his best Comprar Nike Air Max Blancas , Phelps was touched out by Japan's Kosuke Hagino, who got his hand on the wall first in 1:56.02 to claim his second gold.
Asked about his week after signing off with gold in the medley relay, Phelps said in a pool deck interview that it had been "up and down" but added "there's no better way to end a great week of racing then being with these guys and finishing with a win."
Phelps Comprar Nike Air Vapormax , once the master of winning tight races, finished just 0.02 behind Hagino while his teammate Ryan Lochte was left wondering what might have been after he took it too easy in the morning heats and failed to qualify for the final.
Lochte won the consolation final in the same time as Hagino won the main event to join Phelps in the American team for next year's world championships in Russia, but didn't get a medal.
Japan also won both 200 meters breaststroke finals with Yasuhiro Koseki taking out the men's race and teenager Kanako Watanabe clinching the -women's.
ACCRA， Aug. 26 (Xinhua) -- Ghana's performance at the Rio Olympic Games is nothing good to write home about.
The 16 athletes who represented the country failed to grab a single medal at the multi-sport event， bringing to an end another failed attempt by end Ghana's 24-year Olympic medal drought.
The last time Ghana won a medal at the Olympics was at the Barcelona 1992 where the men's football team， the Black Meteors， got bronze， and there had been three previous Olympic medals in boxing.
In all， Ghana has managed only four Olympic medals in comparison with Kenya， Africa's best performers at the Games， achieving a 86-medal feat.
Ghana's unimpressive performance at the Olympic Games has been blamed on the poor supporting system and investment in sports in general.
Despite the poor performance， there are positives that can be harnessed for future international sports assignments.
For example， Ghana's first female Olympic swimmer， Kaya Forson， competed in the women's 200m freestyle and got eliminated after finishing third in her heat.
She made her personal best of 2:16.02， a performance that earned her admiration from many Ghanaians.
Analysts said Ghana needs to desist from shoddy preparations and take all sporting disciplines seriously if it wishes to make a mark on the international scene and reverse its poor showing at the Olympics.
A former world boxing champion， Azumah Nelson， said he is not surprised about the results of the athletes as Ghana has concentrated on football to the detriment of the other sporting disciplines.
This， he noted， had caused the poor performance of the Olympic team at Rio 2016.
Erasmus Adorkor， Director of the National Sports College， has called on the government to support the athletes who competed at the just-ended Olympic Games with the needed resources to develop their talents.
Sports pundits have also called on the government and sports authorities to develop a sports development program to boost Ghana's success in the future.
"Huge investment must be put into this area by first identifying sports that Ghana will excel in， then putting in place a framework and a long term strategy to find the champions of tomorrow by incorporating the issues raised in point one and sticking to that plan，" said Kwame Osei， a sports analyst and an experienced exercise physiologist.
But there is consolation in the fact that the Ghana Olympic squad comprised young athletes with an average age of 22 years.
Considering future ahead of them， and the exposure they have had， the squad is likely to make a greater impact in the Tokyo 2020.
Weirdly Comprar Nike Air Max 2018 Hombre , the lead-up to Justin Timberlake’s big return to the Super Bowl Halftime Shoe has been largely about managing expectations. Rather than teasing something that the world has never seen before, Timberlake has been telling people not to get too excited about a surprise appearance from Janet Jackson or the other members of ‘N Sync while rumors began to spread about a scheme that would directly contradict the wishes of Princ.
