Click on the video player above Tuesday at 11:20 a.m. ET to watch live swimming finals from the the FINA World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Canadian Kylie Masse will go for gold in the women's 100-metre backstroke after nearly setting a world record in Monday's semifinals.

In other events, Canada's Kierra Smith tries for a medal in the women's 100m breaststroke final after trying for the sixth-best time in the semis, while American star Katie Ledecky looks to continue her dominance in the 1,500m final.

Masse, who broke through with a bronze in the 100 back at the Rio Olympics, finished first in her semifinal heat with a time of 58.18 seconds and heads to the final in the top spot.

CBC Sports analyst Byron MacDonald, who coaches Masse, thinks his swimmer can break the world record and is one of two favourites for gold.

"Yes [she can break the world record], though it's always easier to swim in a semi than it is in a final," said MacDonald. "Not so sure anyone but the American [Kathleen Baker] can come close to her."
