France’s Yannick Agnel Gets Second Gold, Beats Ryan Lochte Again

July 30 (Bloomberg) -- France’s Yannick Agnel cruised to his second gold medal of the Olympic swimming competition today, leading his rivals including the U.S.’s Ryan Lochte from start to finish in the 200-meter freestyle.

The 20-year-old who overhauled Lochte in the final leg of the 400-meter freestyle relay yesterday stormed to victory at London’s Aquatic Center in 1 minutes, 43.14 seconds.

Lochte, who took Michael Phelps’s 400-meter individual medley crown on the first day of the swimming meet, failed to place in the top three.

China’s Sun Yang and Korea’s Park Tae Hwan were in a dead heat for the silver medal, finishing in 1:44.93. Lochte was fourth at 1:45.04. No bronze medal was awarded.

World champion Paul Biedermann of Germany was fifth. Phelps, the 2008 Olympic champion, didn’t enter the event this year.
