Watch Kylie Masse swim for another medal at worlds


Click on the video player above now to watch live swimming action from the the FINA World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Canada will compete for a medal in the mixed 4×100-metre medley relay final.

The Canadian team posted the third-fastest time in the heats and will add Kylie Masse for the final after she skipped the heats while competing in the individual 50m backstroke event.

Despite breaking her own Canadian record with a time of 27.64 seconds in the semifinals, Masse was eliminated after placing 10th. On Tuesday, Masse won gold and set a world record in the 100 backstroke.

Earlier, American star Katie Ledecky’s bid to win six gold medals at the meet came to an end when she tied for silver in the women’s 200m freestyle final, won by Italy’s Federica Pellegrini. Ledecky had started in Budapest by winning the 400 and 1,500 freestyle titles and adding gold in the 4×100 freestyle relay.

Canada’s Yuri Kisil was eliminated in the men’s 100 freestyle semifinals after placing 10th.
