LONDON (AP) - Allison Schmitt of the United States set an Olympic record to win the 200-meter freestyle at the London Games on Tuesday.

Schmitt clocked 1 minute, 53.61 seconds, shaving more than a second off the mark set by Italy's Federica Pellegrini four years ago in Beijing.

The 400-meter champion Camille Muffat of France touched in 1:55.58 to take the silver and Bronte Barratt of Australia finished in 1:55.81 to get bronze.

American teenager Missy Franklin finished fourth and world-record holder Pellegrini was fifth.
