World record and milestone for Dressel at change

Caeleb Dressel has improved the world record on the 100 meter interchange short lane with a good bite. The American swam at international competitions in Budapest 49.88 and is the first swimmer to cross the 50 seconds limit on that part.

The 24-year-old Dressel, who won seven world titles on the long track in 2017 in the same bath, was 0.38 faster than the old top time of the Russian Vladimir Morozov from 2018 in Eindhoven.

Third world record in Budapest

On Saturday Kira Toussaint had already set a world record on the 50 meter backstroke at the same event. With 25,60 she sharpened the old top time of the Brazilian Etienne Medeiros from 2014 with 0.07.

Adam Peaty swam a new global top time on Sunday at the 100 meter breaststroke. At 55.49, the Brit was 0.12 faster than the South African Cameron van der Burgh in 2009.
