Swimming Triple Crown: Dressel wins record 3 golds at worlds

Posted July 31, 2017

Dressel swam the butterfly leg for the United States on the victorious men's 4x100-meter medley relay, the traditional concluding event. When you take six months off and only come back in December, January, that's what you get. "There's no other way to say it".

The 22-year-old was a favourite to win the event after he clinched Singapore's historic gold medal during the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Marsh was the head coach of the US women's team at the Rio Olympics and served as a men's assistant coach for the 2012, 2000 and 1996 US Olympic teams.

Phelps won seven gold medals at Melbourne in 2007, then one-upped himself when he bagged eight at the Beijing Olympics the following year.

Dual world champion James Magnussen (shoulder) is expected back next year along with Chalmers, adding to Australia's current sprint stocks of Cameron McEvoy and young gun Jack Cartwright. "I think three years to Tokyo (Olympic Games), he definitely has enough time to gear up and prepare", said the one-time fastest 50m freestyle swimmer in the world.

The championships in Hungary, which came to an end on Sunday, were Israel's first major competition under new head coach David Marsh.

Schooling himself acknowledged the budding rivalry after the final, saying: "Everyone needs someone who will push you to go faster. He had a 50m free final just before that".

After his big night on Saturday, Dressel was asked about the inevitable comparisons to Phelps.

Capito votes against straight repeal of ACA
That didn't stop McCain from giving a long speech right after his vote about how the Senate must return to its procedural norms. The state waivers would have built on an existing Obamacare program that allows states to pursue their own health care plans.

Nonetheless, he said he was "glad to get a medal at least". "The most important is making the top 16 and now it's onto the next race". "Zheng Wen also broke the national record for the 200m backstroke", she said.

20-year-old Ledecky won her 14th world gold, spanning three championships, with victory in the women's 800m freestyle, but was happy for Dressel to take the limelight.

In addition to finishing 18th in the 100m fly, he was also 18th in both the 200m fly and 100m backstroke, as well as finishing 24th - in a new Singaporean record time - in the 200m backstroke.

As with all his previous medals, Schooling will hand over this one to his parents to store in his father's office cabinet.

Three races. Three more gold medals to load onto the flight back to Green Cove Springs.

Comerford earned her first gold medal of the 2017 World Championships by setting an American record (52.59 seconds) during the opening leg of the women's 400-meter relay on Sunday, July 23, setting the stage for U-L teammate Kelsi Worrell, five-time Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky and two-time Olympic gold medalist Manuel to give the US a first-place finish.

Dressel's speed, coupled with the sheer noise inside the arena, clearly lifted Kristof Milak of Hungary who posted a world junior record time for silver. He also won bronze in the 100m fly at the 2015 edition in Russian Federation.
