Lochte, who first landed the 200m IM title in Rome in 2009 and has now won at least one gold at the last six editions of the championships stretching back to Montreal 10 years ago, won in one minute 55.81 seconds.Following a poor U.S. trials, Lochte has competed in fewer events at these championships than at any time in the last 11 years.
