Caeleb Dressel Below the Surface – Taper Time in Gainesville

Earlier this month we sent swimming photographer Mike Lewis to Gainsville to spend some time with University of Flordia senior Caeleb Dressel below the surface.

Undoubtedly, Dressel will be one of the highlights at the Men’s NCCA DI Championships this week and we’re getting psyched up (and we’re still riding the wave set by the women’s championship).  Here’s a look at the underwater photography session with some new images from the Lewis and Dressel session.

Dear Caeleb Dressel,

Please PLEASE tuck in your suit strings at NCAA’s!! Don’t want to see you have to have another 40.00 situation this year.
