Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen smashed world record by a second and her own personal best by five seconds
Last 50m was slightly faster than men's gold medallist Ryan Lochte
Ryan Lochte knocked Olympic icon Michael Phelps off his perch on Saturday with a brilliant performance to win the men's 400m individual medley.
But just minutes later, in the women's version of the event, a 16-year-old Chinese prodigy performed an even more amazing feat as she smashed the world record and left her competitors far behind.
Ye Shiwen posted such a good time that her final 50m was in fact faster than Lochte's performance in the men's event, at just 28.93 seconds. Her achievement was so unprecedented that it even led some broadcasters to question whether Ye had benefited from underhand practices.
Chinese swimming has previously been tainted by drug scandals another 16-year-old world champion tested positive for doping last month but Foster sought to play down any suggestion of cheating.

is the ONE WORLD, HATE AMERICA FIRST, GAMES.....over yet?
He didn't win that, and Ye didn't set that record all by herself. Someone had to fill that pool!
One world?? LMAO. And from what I have seen the foreigners have been cheering on the Americans..
Guess you did not see how the entire stadium went nuts(cheering in a good way) over the American women gymnast performance yesterday which just rocked...Hint, the Americans worst scores were better than the other countries good scores....and people were amazed.
Five seconds!? The Chi-coms have obviously produced GM swimmers. I’d look for webbing between fingers and toes, and a blow hole atop their heads.
Maybe you should stop watching the Olympics through the distorted glass prism of NBC?
Nothing remotely similar to your claim is happening, except that your ONE WORLD HATE AMERICA first lady is over here eating lobster.
stopped watching this travesty back in HS some 40 plus years ago...
then they finally got baseball and now its out again???....
...but thats ok too ,because...
...in the words of Cliff Robertson as Cole Younger in the Great Northfield Minnesota Raid
Shooting is our national pastime. Always has been, always will be.
and on that note....congrats to American Kim Rhode for taking the gold medal in Womens Skeet FIVE OLYMPICS IN A ROW.
dont watch it at all....
I watch Baseball (MLB) and I SHOOT.....the American Pastimes.
let Chewie choke on her lobsters.
Are you badmouthing the UN?
She didn’t do that - it was the water that made her win.
I can’t believe in 2016 they will have Golf in the Olympics.
Which to me makes absolutely no sense at all. It’s not as if being Olympic Champion in Golf suddenly means you are the best in the world (ditto for Tennis). And Golf is the one sport where the playing field is different, so that makes it even more unstable as an Olympic Sport. Is the course going to be more European or American style.
If I had my way, I would strip the Games back to where they were back in Montreal 1976, and get rid of any event that was added since, ok, maybe I’ll keep the women’s beach volleyball. ;)
Too bad.......that you are missing out on this...
Even with drugs, I don’t understand how the little arms of a teenage girl can propel her as fast as the tremendous shoulder-girdle and long reach of a man. Men have longer, stronger thighs. This just doesn’t seem kosher.
So,your an ... man?
Oh.... long.... Johnson.....
I got nothing. Just needed to reply to stop looking at that.
