Swimming: Pellegrini sets another WR for the home folks

Associated Press

ROME Italy's Federica Pellegrini has set her second world record of the world swimming championships and the 15th overall, equaling the number from the meet two years ago.

Pellegrini, who already set a record in the 400-meter freestyle, took down the mark in the 200 free in a semifinal heat Tuesday. The time of 1:53.67 broke her own record of 1:54.47 set in March.

The record-breaking has now matched the 2007 worlds in Melbourne and through only the third day of an eight-day meet.
