Caeleb Dressel obliterated the world record in the 100 IM at Monday’s ISL Semifinal 2, going 49.88 in the 100 individual medley.
The world record had been Vlad Morozov’s 50.26, the Russian with a stranglehold on the top 10 times in history before the ISL season began. Dressel’s American record had been 50.48, set in ISL Match 10, then the seventh-fastest in history. Morozov’s record dates to Sept. 28, 2018, set in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Tuesday, Dressel just left the pack behind from the get-go. He went out in 22.79, then came back in 27.09.Read Swimming World
