It will be a race to remember. Olympian Michael Phelps will take on course record holder and world champion Caeleb Dressel in the 100-meter butterfly at the TYR Pro Swim Series stop in Indianapolis. But they won’t be alone. defi 100mchavezdreyfussreuters
When it comes to competitive swimming, the name on everyone’s lips is Michael Phelps. But there’s another swimmer who is quickly gaining attention and making a name for himself: 100m freestyle world record holder Caeleb Dressel. defi 100mchavezdreyfussreuters
Dressel made headlines when he beat Phelps in the 100m butterfly at the 2017 World Championships.
In August, 2013, 100m world record holder Usain Bolt of Jamaica said he would like to see more of his Jamaican compatriot and training partner Yohan Blake in future races. Blake, who is the world’s second fastest man with a time of 9.69 seconds, has only beaten Bolt once in their three head-to-head meetings. The two sprinters have a friendly rivalry and are often seen joking around with each other in training.
