LONDON —

Daniel Gyurta of Hungary set a world record to win the 200-meter breaststroke at the London Olympics on Wednesday.

Gyurta clocked 2 minutes, 7.28 seconds, shaving 0.03 off the previous mark set by Christian Sprenger of Australia at the 2009 world championships in a now-banned bodysuit.

Michael Jamieson of Britain touched in 2:07.43 to take the silver medal and Ryo Tateishi of Japan finished in 2:08.29 for bronze.

Two-time defending champion Kosuke Kitajima of Japan finished fourth, ending his bid to become the first man to win the same swimming event at three consecutive Olympics.
