Caeleb Dressel won the NCAA title during his freshman year at Florida, finishing one one-hundredth off of Nathan Adrian’s American record, but his long course 50 had yet to catch up, as he entered the day with a seed time of 22.35. Dressel made quick work of that in prelims, leading the way with a 21.85, and he cut even more time in the final with a 21.53.

After the race, Dressel gave his take on the race, including how it felt to be ranked so highly in the world and how he finally caught up his long course swimming to his short course success. He also previewed what might be in store for Sunday’s 100 free.
