Caeleb Dressel breaks Olympic record on way to second gold

American Caeleb Dressel set an Olympic record on his way to winning the men’s 100m freestyle gold medal as he seeks to become one of the most successful swimmers at an individual Games.

Dressel won in a time of 47.02 seconds to claim his second gold in Tokyo.

Dressel claimed his second gold of the Games following his part in the United States’ 4x100m relay victory, but it was a close race as Australia’s Kyle Chalmers finished just 0.06secs adrift with Russian Kliment Kolesnikov in third.

Dressel could finish these Olympics as one of the most successful swimmers at an individual Games as he is in contention for a further four medals – two individual (100m butterfly and 50m) and two in relays (medley and mixed medley).

Only two swimmers in Olympic history have won more than six medals at a Games – Michael Phelps with eight in Beijing in 2008 and Mark Spitz with seven in Munich in 1972.

“There’s been a lot of pressure on me. There’s nothing wrong with pressure but there is with stress. I handled it well and I am happy,” Dressel told BBC Sport.
