Madison Wilson, Emma McKeon, Kotuku Ngawati and Ariarne Titmus celebrate after claiming bronze in the 4x200m freestyle relay in Budapest.

NO Australian woman has won more medals at one world swimming championships than Emma McKeon has after five days in Budapest.

McKeon collected her fifth medal, a bronze as part of the women’s 4 X 200m freestyle relay team, equalling the record tallies of Libby Trickett and Alicia Coutts.

Trickett won five gold medals in Melbourne in 2007, while Coutts won five silver medals in Barcelona in 2013.

McKeon now has four silvers and a bronze but said she was feeling the strain of her workload after five days.
