The American swimmer Caeleb Dressel set two world records in the finals of the International Swimming League. First, Dressel undercut the previously unattainable mark of 48 seconds over the 100 meter butterfly and won his final run in Budapest with 47.78 seconds. Around 40 minutes later, the 24-year-old also improved his own short-distance world record over the 50 meter freestyle by eight hundredths and hit the edge of the pool after 20.16 seconds.
Just a few days ago, the double Olympic champion set the world record in the 100 meter medley – in 49.88 seconds. Dressel was the first swimmer in the world to stay below the 50-second mark on the short individual medley course. At the world championships in the same place, Dressel won seven world titles in 2017. In last year’s title fights, the 24-year-old American was successful six times in Gwangju, South Korea. Dressel is considered one of the top medal contenders for the Tokyo Olympics next year.
Editor’s note: In an earlier version it was said that Caeleb Dressel set the world record for 100 meters freestyle a few days ago. But he managed the new record in the 100 meter medley. We have corrected the relevant passage.
