(Newser) – Six for six. Michael Phelps swam to another gold medal with an easy win in the 200 individual medley, the AP reports. Phelps, who continued his perfect streak of world records, beat Hungary's Laszlo Czeh (silver) and fellow American Ryan Lochte (bronze). He's got two races remaining to set a record of 8 golds in a single Games—the 100 butterfly Friday night (10:10pm ET) and the 4x100 medley relay Saturday night (10:58pm ET).
