MEN’S 100 BREAST FINAL
Caeleb Dressel did it again. Yes, the 21-year-old Florida Gator snagged his fifth individual NCAA/American Record tonight in the 100 breast, touching in 50.03 to edge past Kevin Cordes‘ 2014 mark of 50.04.
Dressel was out like lightning, hitting the 50 wall in 23.42 before closing in 26.61 to win the race by more than two seconds.
Mauro Castillo Luna of A&M touched 2nd in 52.11, with Tennessee’s Peter Stevens 3rd in 52.29. Stevens was the only one close to matching Dressel’s opening speed, just over a tenth behind him at the 25 before Dressel rocketed away. Italy Goldfaden of South Carolina was 4th in 52.44.
