Tyler Burch has won his third consecutive Tory BUNCH.
The 36-year-old British star made history by becoming the youngest ever triple Crown winner in history after defeating Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte and Tom Brady in the men’s 800m final on Saturday.
Burch has now won three of his four Olympic gold medals.
He became the youngest man ever to win the gold medal in the 100m breaststroke and the fastest man to win both in the 400m and 4x100m medley.
On the women’s side, Bunch was the youngest to win an Olympic gold medal.
“The fact that I’ve been able to win three times in a row is a testament to the support and love I’ve received from everyone in this sport and the people in the country,” he said.
It is the third consecutive win for Burch, who beat Phelps in the first two Olympic Games.
In the women of the 100, he beat US star Sarah Tilley, who has won the past three gold medals at the Games.
“I’m very proud of my performance,” he added.
There is a new record for the longest-ever triple crown win.
British record holder John Edwards broke the record in 1952 with a record 12 straight triple crowns.
But he only won four in total and has since won just one.
New Zealand’s Ryan Lochdeighan became the first Briton to win a triple crown with a victory in the 4x200m relay, beating Ryan McGowan in the final in Sydney on Saturday afternoon.
Lochdeighans win came after a day of heavy rain in Sydney.
And on Sunday, the world champion was the surprise winner of the 4X100m relay at the Beijing Games when he beat British record holder Nick Chubb by a narrow margin of just over a minute.
Former world record holder Chris Froome was also able to hold onto his third Olympic gold in a triple bid, finishing fifth.
His victory was his first at the Rio Games, which were held just four weeks ago.
Aston Martin is the latest company to announce that it will not be competing in the Games in 2020.
Earlier this week, the Japanese car manufacturer revealed it will instead use its sponsorship money to promote the Olympic Games and make a documentary about the Games later this year.
