Caeleb Dressel is almost invincible when he has a lane.

But do you give him a deficit of more than 8 seconds?

Well, it’s too much to overcome in two laps of the pool, even the greatest swimmers in the world.

On a chaotic emotional and chaotic race morning at the Tokyo Aquatics Center, Dressel set a world record with a 100-meter butterfly, but basically before jumping into the pool with a new mixed relay on Saturday. I was destined.

So he had a chance to join a very upscale club. His bid to win six gold medals collapsed in another US relay blunder. Americans were too late with a 4×100 meter mixed medley when the top swimmers took over, so the best thing Dressel could do was to take the United States at an event with two men and two women on each team. It was to finish in 5th place. Britain has set a world record to win gold.

“Fifth place is unacceptable for USA swimming,” said Dressel. “It stings.”

It was a disappointing capper for the golden morning for Americans. Both of America’s largest swimmers have climbed to the top of the medal podium.

After Dressel won his third gold medal in the game, Katie Ledecky closed the tough Olympic program with three consecutive victories in 800 Freestyle.

Ledecky was strongly pushed by Australian rival Ariarne Tittoms, but the Americans have continued to race undefeated since 2010.

Ledecky finished in 5th place with 2 gold medals and 2 silver medals at the Tokyo Aquatics Center. It wasn’t as bad as it was in Rio de Janeiro five years ago, but it wasn’t bad.

Ledecky became the first female swimmer to win six individual gold medals in her career. Another olympic title I won 800 free in 8 minutes 12.57 seconds.

Titoms closed hard to win silver at 8: 13.83, and Bronze went to Simona Quadarella, Italy at 8: 18.35.

“I could see her all the time,” Ledecky said of Titoms. “I was watching her and trying to pave the way for her little by little every 50. I knew she was lurking there all the time.

Ledecky lost in the first two matches against Titoms, but defeated Terminator in the final showdown.

“I knew there had to be a little gap, because if we were neck to neck in the last 100, she knew she was doing that finish.”

Dressel took the lead from the start, beating Hungary’s Kristofmirak in 49.45 seconds, breaking the 49.50 mark set by the Americans at the 2019 World Championships.

The winner of the 200-fly, Mirac, won silver with a ferocious momentum of 49.68. Bronze went to Noeponti, Switzerland.

When he saw the “WR” next to his name, Dressel smiled and joined hands with Mirak in the lane next to him. They raised their arms together before Dressel bent his left arm and lifted it into the air.

“He’s going to get me out of work someday, so I’m trying to do my best for as long as possible,” Dressel said. “Christoph performed perfectly. We both swam exactly the race we needed.”

Australian women have added another gold.

Kaylee McKeown won the 200 butterfly and completed the sweep of the backstroke event. Her victory time was 2: 04.68.

Silver went to Kylie Masse, Canada at 2: 05.42, and another Australian Emily Seebohm claimed bronze at 2: 06.17.

Americans Ryan White and Phoebe Bacon finished in 4th and 5th place.

It was a huge Olympics for Australian women. They won 6 of the team’s 7 gold medals in the pool.

Another unfortunate thing for Americans, Simone Manuel was unable to advance to her only personal event, the 500 Free Finals, in these games.

The first black woman to win an individual swimming gold medal marked the eleventh best time in the semifinals, was eliminated, and ended the year of trials diagnosed with overtraining syndrome.

Dressel made it easy in the men’s freestyle semi-finals with the top final time (21.42).

Mixed medley was another story.

For the second time in these Olympics, the United States failed to win a relay medal and finished fourth in the Men’s 4×200 Freestyle. Before Tokyo, Americans never failed to finish in the top three Olympic relays they entered.

Americans have tried different strategies than anyone else. I went freestyle with Dressel and the other seven teams all ended with women.

The Americans were frustrated when 17-year-old Lydia Jacoby, the only woman swimming in the breaststroke legs, knocked off her goggles when she jumped into the water.

The 17-year-old had a hard time finishing at 1: 05.09, with goggles hanging from her mouth as the rest of the field was pulled apart.

“I’ve never really done that before,” Jacoby said. “I was definitely a little panicked. My turn was the roughest place because I couldn’t see the walls.”

Her teammates praised her efforts.

“Everyone who swims with goggles in his mouth like her knows she was great,” said Ryan Murphy, who took the first leg of the backstroke.

When 18-year-old Torihasuke passed Dressel after the butterfly leg, the Americans were 8.01 seconds behind the leader in the last place.

Dressel furiously tried to close the huge gap. His 46.99 leg was better than winning time in 100 free personal events, but not enough to chase all the teams in front of him.

“Everyone swam as much as possible at that moment,” said Dressel. “We lost to a better team.”

The British team of Kathleen Dawson, Adam Peaty, James Guy and Anna Hopkin won the gold medal with a world record of 3: 37.58. Silver went to China at 3: 38.86 and Australia took copper at 3: 38.95.

Dressel touched 3: 40.58, which also finished behind Italy.

He wanted to wipe out In his six events, only the fourth swimmer and the fifth athlete overall won six gold medals at one Olympics.

Swimming icon Michael Phelps performed twice, winning six gold medals at the 2004 Athens Olympics and eight gold medals in Beijing four years later.

Five gold medals are the best way he can do for Dressel, who will have two more races on the final day of swimming.
