is it just me or did he drift in the last bodylength?! fascinating. this kid is going to beat nathan adrian ervin jones etc in ONE year 🙂


He is the huge talented sprinter the Us was waiting for years ! I am not discrediting Adrian , Feigen or Ervin of course ; i love these guys a lot . He is from another league defenetly .
I dream allready to see him on the 400 free relay next year in Kazan : Adrian , Feigen , Dressel + Phelps could be absolutely amazing relay team to watch .

To swim fast in the 50 free looking effortless require a special talent, and Dresser does/has it.
