American teenager Katie Ledecky has improved her own world record in the 1,500-meter freestyle at the swimming world championships.

The 18-year-old Ledecky completed the marathon-like race in 15 minutes, 27.71 seconds — shaving 0.65 seconds off the mark she set at last year's Pan Pacific championships in Australia.

The swim came during morning heats Monday. She'll have a chance to improve it again in Tuesday's final.

It's the fourth time Ledecky has broken the record in the 1,500. She also holds world marks in the 400 and 800 free.

They're off again at soggy St. Andrews, after a more than three-hour rain delay that means the second round of the British Open won't be completed until tomorrow morning.

Parts of the 18th hole were so flooded that teams of workers with push brooms swept ankle-deep water into the Swilcan Burn.

Forecasters are predicting more inclement weather, including some blustery showers later in the day along with strong winds.

The delay will force some players to return Saturday morning to complete their second rounds. That will almost surely include first-round leader Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth who is two shots back and bidding for a third straight major.

Zach Johnson, Retief Goosen (reh-TEEF' GOO'-sehn) and Jason Day are one shot back, as are Robert Streb, Paul Lawrie and Danny Willett.

Tiger Woods was two groups behind Johnson and Spieth, and in danger of missing the cut after a first-round 76.
