Michael Phelps will bid to repeat his feat of six Olympic gold medals when he takes part in the Fina swimming short course world championships. The 19-year-old American hopes to race in all sessions of the Indianapolis competition from 7 to 11 October.

He is due to swim the 200m freestyle, 200m butterfly, 4x200m relay plus the 100m, 200m and 400m indivdual medleys.

Fellow Athens gold winners Aaron Peirsol, Natalie Coughlin and Amanda Beard are also likely to compete.

The seventh Fina championships are being held in a 25-metre pool being constructed at Conseco Fieldhouse, home of the NBA's Indiana Pacers.

Michael Phelps made a winning start to the World Short Course Swim Championships today but fellow American Kaitlin Sandeno stole the show with three titles.

Australian teenager Jade Edmistone, who set the world short course record of 29.90 last month, led the 50m breaststroke finalists in a time of 30.01. American Tara Kirk was second in 30.61.

"I wanted to go as fast as I could and get a good spot in the final," said Edmistone. "I didn't go to the Olympics so I have been training for this meet for six months."

Phelps, whose eight medals at the Athens Olympics included six golds, began his drive for five crowns with a painful 200m freestyle triumph while Sandeno won the 400m individual medley and 200m butterfly and anchored a US 4x200 free relay win.
