Florida senior Caeleb Dressel opened up his racing at the 2018 SEC Swimming & Diving Championships with a 17.92 freestyle anchor on Florida’s winning 200 medley relay.
Dressel swam the fastest 50 relay split ever at last year’s NCAA Championship meet when he dropped a 17.71 to anchor Florida’s 200 medley there. Only his own swims and Vlad Morozov’s 17.86 have been faster than Dressel’s split on Wednesday.
While these splits are not tracked as official record, Dressel does hold 6 American Records – including the fastest 50 yard freestyle from a flat-start. He swam that 18.20 at the 2016 NCAA Championship meet.
Not to be overlooked – Tennessee’s Kyle Decourseysplit 18.14 to close the Volunteers’ 2nd-place relay, which was also under the old Meet Record.
