Then, about 40 minutes later, he returned to the pool to reduce his 50-meter freestyle record time by 0.08 from 20.24 seconds to 20.16.
Dressel’s top speed helped his team, Cali Condors, lead the first day in defending the power title, with London Roar third and LA now fourth.
ISL is contested in swimming pools shorter than 25 meters. Bigger events, such as the Olympics, world championships and national championships, are held in the ຳ 50-meter pool.
Dressel’s second world record-breaking day came this weekend after he became the first swimmer to swim under 50 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles.
He took almost half a second from the previous record set by Russia’s Vladimir Morozov in 2018, finishing with a time of 49.88.
After that, he won three Olympic gold medals in swimming, and now ISL Rowdy Gaines’s writer calls Dressel: “The best swimmer in the world, no one swims.”
Dressel shot at the 2016 Rio Olympics, winning two gold medals in relay. Since then, he has won 13 gold and two silver medals at the last two World Championships.
He is expected to be one of the stars of next summer’s Summer Olympics and may qualify for seven separate events, including relay.
