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.

Chalmers has also been under 48 three times this season , and tops the rankings

At a tapered qualifying meet. Apples and oranges. Stop the comparing and let’s just look forward to worlds

Troy

His 47.48 wasn’t tapered.

Swammer

“Wasn’t tapered”

Camelboar

Okay…

Blackflag82

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

Troy

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

Blackflag82

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.

Dudeman

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)

Michael Mooney

Nothing means anything till worlds..

coacherik

..Magnussen, McEvoy disappointingly nod in agreement..

ERVINFORTHEWIN

and ?😅 what the big deal about it ? many of us appreciate Chalmers talent & impressive improvements .

Justin Thompson

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

TaperTime

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!

Swam

Notably he was out 22.7 the first 50

Mclovin

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

ERVINFORTHEWIN

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

MIKE IN DALLAS

. . . 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.

remel can do anything

wow~~~~ bobo gigi is back again!

Prison MIke

Just in time for World Championships as well

Ol' Longhorn

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

ERVINFORTHEWIN

GREAT JOKE OL”😅

Mclovin

I thought you were talking about your off year, till you mentioned Dressel. Jokes apart, its really nice to see you again here Bobo

ERVINFORTHEWIN

LOL😜

ERVINFORTHEWIN

well resumed BOBO ! he is gonna shake heads …thats for sure but Kyle as well .

coacherik

This doesn’t read like the OG, this a new and improved Bobo Gigi?

Ol' Longhorn

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

ERVINFORTHEWIN

HE RECOGNIZES THE MIGHTY POWER OF THE BATHTUB YARDS POOLS AGAIN 👌

Coleman started his journey in the water at age 1, and although he actually has no memory of that, something must have stuck. A Missouri native, he joined the Columbia Swim Club at age 9, where he is still remembered for his stylish dragon swim trunks. After giving up on …
