Watch Caeleb Dressel Swim 47.9 100 Free (Race Video)

2019 MISSION VIEJO SWIM MEET OF CHAMPIONS

Reported by Braden Keith.

To follow up his morning swim of 47.9, Dressel won the 100 free tonight with yet another 47.9 100m free. Caeleb Dressel swam a 47.97 in the men’s 100 free on Friday morning in prelims at the 2019 Fran Crippen Memorial Swim Meet of Champions. This continues a trend for Dressel this season of being much faster in-season than we’ve seen in previous years. At his last meet, the Atlanta Classic, he was 48.45 in prelims and 47.86 in finals. That prelims swim was the famous 24.1/24.3 nearly-negative split. Coming into this season, his fastest in-season swim was a 48.74 done in June of 2016, a few weeks before the Olympic Trials. Now he’s been under 48 three times this season before the World Championships.

You must have missed the video where Chalmers said he was tapered for that swim…

That wasn’t the 47.48 at nationals (not the trials).

You don’t think he was tapered at Nationals. If he wasn’t then he just showed his taper doesn’t drop much time for him.

47.48 with no taper but a 47.3 with a taper. Either his taper (or rest) isn’t very good or the 47.3 was a bad race for him. I don’t think any swimmer on the planet is good enough to go under 47.5 without rest (or a full taper)

Yes, I love how “The Baron” Chalmers is trying to work his way up the ranks of swimming royalty.

Unless Dressel can’t grow hair on his legs, he’s mighty ready for this meet as well. So him and Chalmers are on equal footing going to Worlds, should be a good race!

Notably he was out 22.7 the first 50

I dont know who will win at Worlds this year, but it will sure be really fun seeing Dressel 0.8s ahead of Kyle at the 50m mark and then Kyle chasing him like a mad man

that will likely happen …unless Troy & Dressel have a second 50 plan in progressive training mode .

. . . And you won’t be the only one holding his breath as Dressel (probably) nails one more peg into the Aussie Swimming Goid Medal Count.

2018 was a good year to have an off year. No major championships. And he still managed to make the team.
You can’t be at 200% each year if you want a successful long career.
Dressel is gonna be a monster at next worlds.

Don’t be fooled. Yozhik just changed his screen name so he’d get better ratios.

Hey Bobo, all that sprint breastroke Dressel did in the baby pool really cratered his career, didn’t it?
