Dressel wins 2 golds on potentially historic night at worlds

SchoolingLeClos-940x580

These three triumphs in about 100 minutes marked a stunning outing for the 20-year-old who has bagged six golds including the 100m free, 4x100m free and mixed medley at this world championships at the Danube Arena. There's no other way to say that.

Dressel, 20, won the men's 50m freestyle and 100m butterfly, also helping the United States clinch the mixed 4x100m freestyle with a new world record.

"It was tough. My legs were burning, I really had to dig deep and get my hands on the wall first", said Manuel, 20, who actually shared Olympic gold with Canada's Penny Oleksiak past year.

Fellow American and nine-time Olympic champion Mark Spitz, who won seven golds at the 1972 Munich Games, told The Straits Times that Dressel "had that killer instinct needed to win finals, which is the most important thing and not just breaking records".

Dressel touched 0.26 seconds outside Michael Phelp's world record set at the 2009 championships and 1.01 seconds ahead of his nearest challenger, Piero Codia of Italy.

"It's been a long meet so hopefully I'll finish on a high note, that's my plan", the 23-year-old said.

He also helped the USA to record its best-ever world championship haul, with 38 medals. "He had a 50m free final just before that".

"It's sad when I can't do it", said Sjostrom.

Nonetheless, he said he was "glad to get a medal at least".

With time fast running out, Michy Batshuayi thought he had restored parity for Chelsea but his goal was disallowed for offside. Two coaches [Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti] were sacked after they won the league so for sure I want to avoid it.

Another event in which the allocation of medals was decided today was men's water polo as 2015 runners-up Croatia denied hosts Hungary a fourth world title with an 8-6 victory in the final at the Alfred Hajos Pool. He did not make the last-16 in any of them and vowed to return stronger at next month's SEA Games.

Phelps retired for the second time after the Rio Games.

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.

In-form Dressel showed no signs of fatigue some 30 minutes earlier as he posted the second fastest time in qualifying for the 50m freestyle semi-finals.

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

US swimmer Caeleb Dressel equaled compatriot Michael Phelps's record of seven gold medals at a single world championships on Sunday.

That took his total to six, prompting much talk of him and Phelps, and he duly obliged on the final night of action, swimming the butterfly leg in 49.76 as the United States won in 3:27.91, Dressel winning his fourth relay of the competition.

Israel's Jonatan Kopelev ended the 50-meter backstroke final at the swimming world championships in Budapest, Hungary, in the eighth and final place on Sunday. He also won bronze in the 100m fly at the 2015 edition in Russian Federation.
