12th FINA World Championships

Park Tae-hwan of South Korea pulled off an upset at the first swimming final of the world championships Sunday, coming from behind to knock off Aussie favorite Grant Hackett in the 400-meter freestyle.
Park made a furious sprint over the final 50 meters, passing three swimmers Hackett included before he touched the wall in 3 minutes, 44.30 seconds to become South Korea's first world champion.
In fact, it was the first medal of any kind for the South Koreans in the history of the world aquatic championships.

Another first was the 4 x 100 mens freestyle African American swimmer, He is the first to ever represent America in a world championships and thus the first to ever win a medal and that colour was GOLD.

South Africa's Roland Schoeman wins back to back world title in the 50metre butterfly, he took 1 breath only...
