Caeleb Dressel broke his world record and claimed his third gold in the 100-meter butterfly.

The American swimmer hung his third medal of the Olympic Games and is positioned as one of the significant figures in Tokyo 2020.

A few minutes later, Dressel himself, a native of Florida, returned to compete in the semifinals of the 50 meters freestyle and won his series with a time of 21.42 to seal his ticket to the finals of the fastest test in swimming.

Caeleb Dressel, designated by the specialized press as the successor to Michael Phelps, shone in the 100-meter butterfly stroke, one of the most anticipated events in Olympic swimming. The American met all the predictions: he broke the world record for the category and won the gold medal, the third he has won at Tokyo 2020.

With a time of 49s45, he improved by 0s05, his record of the Gwanju World Cup 2019. In second place was the Hungarian Kristóf Milak (winner in the 200m test), with 49s68, a new European record in the specialty. Switzerland's Noe Ponti took the bronze medal by finishing third with 50s74. Once the race was over, the American swimmer congratulated whoever followed him in the test because he was very close to snatching the first position from him.

A few minutes later, Dressel himself, a native of Florida, returned to compete in the semifinals of the 50 meters freestyle and won his series with a time of 21.42 to seal his ticket to the finals of the fastest test in swimming. World.

The American is one of the significant figures of Tokyo 2020, where he already prevailed in the queen test of swimming, the 100 meters in freestyle, by beating the defending champion, the Australian Kyle Chalmers, who won the medal of silver, and the Russian Kliment Kolesnikov, who completed the podium with his bronze medal.

The 24-year-old also signed a new Olympic record in that event by stopping the timer at 47 seconds and two hundredths. He had also climbed to the top of the podium in the 4x100 meter freestyle team event.

After his conquest of the 100m butterfly, Dressel aspires to climb to the top of the podium of the Tokyo Aquatic Center also in the 50-meter freestyle and the 4x100 meter relay styles in individual and mixed categories.
