LONDON (AP) - Chinese teenager Ye Shiwen set an Olympic record to win the 200-meter individual medley at the London Games on Tuesday, adding to her gold in the 400 IM.

The 16-year-old Ye took the lead in the final lap and clocked 2 minutes, 7.57 seconds, shaving 0.18 off her own mark set in Monday's semifinal.

Alicia Coutts of Australia touched in 2:08.15 to take the silver medal and Caitlin Leverenz of the United States finished in 2:08.95 to take bronze.

Defending champion Stephanie Rice of Australia was fourth.
