BARCELONA (Reuters) - American Olympic champion Missy Franklin won her second gold of the world swimming championships on Tuesday with victory in the women's 100 meters backstroke.

The 18-year-old powered home in a time of 58.42 seconds at the Palau Sant Jordi following Sunday's 4x100 meters freestyle relay triumph.

Australia's Emily Seebohm, second behind Franklin at the Olympics in London last year, was second in 59.06 seconds and Aya Terakawa of Japan took bronze in 59.23.
