Caeleb Dressel Does it Again! 17.63 to win the 50 Free

2018 MEN’S NCAA SWIMMING & DIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS

Florida’s Caeleb Dressel has once again made history. Dressel, owner of the 10 fastest times in history, successfully defended his 50 free title at the 2018 NCAA Championships as he raced to the wall in 17.63. That makes him 4-for-4 in the 50 free throughout his NCAA career. His individual swim tonight comes after he split a 17.81 on the leadoff split of the 200 free relay to kick off the session.

Dressel literally won the race by a second, as NC State’s Ryan Held was very fast to take 2nd in 18.64. Minnesota’s Bowen Becker, the 8th fastest man ever, was just shy of his best to take 3rd tonight. Cal freshman Ryan Hoffer, the 9th fastest man ever, tied for 5th with Auburn’s Zach Apple in 18.97.
