2016 Rio Olympic team members Caeleb Dressel and Ryan Lochte have both scratched out of the men’s 100 meter butterfly semifinals for tonight.
The Bolles School Sharks’ Dressel was the seventh seed after prelims this morning, clocking 52.22. Lochte, who swims for SwimMAC, finished ninth this morning with 52.66.
With those two scratches, the University of Michigan’s rising junior Aaron Whitaker (53.31) and Duke’s Michael Miller (53.32) both move up into the semifinals.
Both Dressel and Lochte’s decisions to scratch are so they can focus on their more-primary events for the night. For Dressel, that event is the 50 free semifinal, while Lochte has the 200 IM final. The 200 IM race will be this week’s highly-anticipated showdown between Lochte and Michael Phelps.
Dressel comes into the 50 freestyle semifinals tonight seeded first with his 21.76 from this morning. Lochte finished first in the semifinals of the 200 IM yesterday. His seed time for tonight is 1:56.71.
