BARCELONA (Reuters) - American Ryan Lochte won a third consecutive world title in the men's 200 meters individual medley in Barcelona on Thursday.

Lochte touched in a time of one minute 54.98 seconds, almost a second slower than the world record of 1:54.00 he set to win the gold in 2011. Kosuke Hagino of Japan was second in 1:56.29 and Thiago Pereira of Brazil third in 1:56.30.

Lochte is the second man only after compatriot Michael Phelps to win a treble of 200 medley world titles.

Phelps took gold in the event in 2003, 2005 and 2007 and beat Lochte into second place to win the Olympic title in London last year.
