(AP) Ryan Lochte and Missy Franklin each won two national titles Wednesday night with times that ranked among the top five in the world this year.


The two star American swimmers took a similar tack.


They each won in the 200 freestyle, then returned to the pool less than 90 minutes later and each won in the 200 backstroke.


Lochte won the 200 free in 1 minute, 45.97 seconds, fifth-fastest in the world this year, and took the 200 back in 1:55.16, third-fastest in 2013.


Franklin's time of 1:55.63 in the 200 free was 0.08 seconds off the world's best this season. The Olympic champion and world-record holder in the 200 back then set a U.S. Open record in that race at 2:05.68, the world's best time this season.
