re: Caleb Dressel
But if he repeats his Tokyo performance in Paris, that would push him above Spitz imo.

Of course Spitz likely retired at a young age because he wanted to cash in on his endorsements, which wasn’t allowed back then, but that has limited his resume.

IMO, Dressel has the greatest start and turns in swimming history. He puts a body length on other swimmers with underwater dolphin kick


Nobody has done the dolphin kick better than Phelps. He's hit the turns behind only to resurface ahead in a lot of his races. He maxed out that red line on the ropes alot.

I feel so bad for Lochte. He would be in every single conversation about the greatest swimmers of all time if he didn't happen to swim in the same era as Phelps.

Now he's not much more than an afterthought people sometimes remember.

Lochte is more known for being a colossal moron than for being a great swimmer.

Nah. After his absolute embarrassment in Rio, I don’t care if he gets forgotten. Dude is dumber than a literal box of rocks.

Lochte seemed to get his shite together tho. Got married, and is a dad. Seems like he is just a family dude now. But he had some idiot a times in his life.

Florida Gator swimmers are pretty awesome! Caleb, Finke, Lochte.

I never really follow swimming until the Olympics but it seems there are other SEC school that have some great swimmers too.

You’d think with the number of Olympians we pump out we’d win more national titles…

How Dressel isn't at least 80% as famous as Phelps is kind of beyond me.


From Jax to Gainesville, he pretty much has been famous for several years already.

I feel the same way about UVA. If they'd just recruit the Baltimore/Washington, DC area hard their team would be stacked.

Dressed is incredible and seems like such a good guy.

BTW...those masks that our athletes have to wear on the award podium are ridiculous. They look like a dog muzzle.

Question:

1. What are those annoying horns that blare during swimming? Are they just fans blowing noise makers?

re: Caleb Dressel
Typical any kind of “on beat” whistle or air horn is a coach or parent (when allowed) yelling at their swimmer.
