The Floridian swam the 100m free three times in Rio and his time got worse from the preliminaries to the semi-finals to the final, ultimately leaving him sixth overall at 48.02 while Chalmers won gold with a 47.58. This time, Dressel was at his best when it mattered most, posting a 47.02 to break an Olympic record that had stood since Beijing 2008. Afterward, he described winning his first individual gold as a weight off his shoulders. "It is different," Dressel said. "I didn't want to admit it but now that I did it, I can. "It's a lot different – you can't rely on anyone else. It's just you and the water, there's no one there to bail you out. It's tough." Winning the gold in a head-to-head showdown with the reigning champion made victory even sweeter. . . .
