The men’s 50m freestyle final at the 2021 Olympics will give American swimming star Caeleb Dressel another opportunity at gold.
Caeleb Dressel already has three gold medals to his name at the 2021 Olympics. Can he add another?
On Saturday night, Dressel will be back in the pool for the men’s 50m freestyle final with one final shot at adding another medal to his collection.
Dressel already has wins in the 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly, a race in which he set a new world record. He also helped Team USA grab gold in the 4x100m freestyle.
He had to secure his place in the 50m freestyle final just 45 minutes after his dazzling performance in the butterfly.
Now it’s time to see if he can get it done again.
