Caeleb Dressel Writes History With Three Golds In One Night

Caeleb Dressel Rattles World Record With 50.08 100m Butterfly

Caeleb Dressel Rattles World Record With 50.08 100m Butterfly

Caeleb Dressel of the United States became the first swimmer to win three gold medals in a single evening at the world championships after producing a trio of storming performances on Saturday.

After just over an hour to recover, Dressel then led the US quartet out in a world-record rout in the 4x100 metres mixed freestyle relay.

A second World Championships medal should not be taken lightly but to the supremely competitive Schooling, gold has always been his obsession and fuel.

Russian Federation were third in 3:29.76, Danila Izotov anchoring the quartet with a 46.69 freestyle leg. But I know they're going to come.

Kalisz, meanwhile, extended American rule of the 200-meter individual medley, rallying to claim his first major global championship.

Sjostrom set her second world record of the meet, having already established a new standard in the 100 free while swimming the leadoff leg of the 4x100 free relay.

"I always think I have a shot - that's what makes me the swimmer I am". I thought, 'What the heck is this old guy talking, he's insane, ' but that shows I got to learn the hard way.

"It took a toll on me for a few months", he said.

"It would be incredible to win the 4x200m on home soil next year (Gold Coast) and I think we are a good shot at that".

Women's 50m Freestyle Semifinals - Budapest, Hungary - July 29, 2017 - Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden celebrates after winning the race and breaking the World Record.

Sjostrom's time in the semi-finals broke the previous mark of 23.73 seconds set by Germany's Britta Steffen in 2009.

In other events Thursday, Rio champion Mireia Belmonte of Spain stayed on top in the 200 butterfly, finishing strong to deny Katinka Hosszu another gold before the home crowd.

In the space of one hour and 42 minutes, Dressel, 20, rewrote the record books of worldwide swimming. "He took a really big step this year as we can see".

"I went out fast, it felt really good in the first 50m, but I'm totally destroyed - now there's so much pain in my muscles". Two of his golds came in events that feature men and women on the same team, races Phelps never competed in at worlds.

Indeed, Dressel has emerged as the breakout performer of these championships, with a bit of help from the relatively new mixed relays. "But I had mixed relays helping me out, so it's a bit different".

Dressel led off Nathan Adrian, Mallory Comerford and Simone Manuel on a United States team that swam 3:19.60 to shatter the world record ahead of the Netherlands and Canada.

"I won't talk about a comeback, if I'm fourth or fifth tomorrow that's how it is - I want to talk about medals". So I have 24 hours until my next swim. About 30 minutes later, he was back in action with a win in the 100 butterfly.
