Halsall beat fellow Briton Georgia Davies by one hundredth of a second to win the 50m backstroke final in 27.81.
It's her second Gold medal of the championships, after success in the 100 metre freestyle mixed relay.
She's also bringing home a Bronze medal from the 50 metre butterfly.
Gail Rickett seems to have the magic touch when it comes to teaching children how to swim.
Her website makes a bold claim - that she can teach 99 % of all children aged 5 and above to be able to swim between 10 and 200m in just four hours.
Some of the Southport swim instructor's biggest success stories include Jodie swam a mile aged just four, and five-year-old Leah who swam five miles after just 18 months of lessons.
Parents of her pupils have nicknamed her "The Water Whisperer".

"On behalf of Merseyside Police I would like to offer my sincere condolences to Clancy’s family.
"This is a wholly tragic case, aptly summarised during the trial, as a case with no winners. What was clear during the investigation, that despite all the difficulties in her life, Clancy was a caring individual who gave a great deal to those around her. I know from my dealings with them, she will be sadly missed by her siblings, friends and work colleagues.
"I would like take this opportunity to thank the investigation team for their commitment and tenacity in preparing this case for court and Crown Prosecution Service staff, who have provided support in this investigation."
