Caeleb Dressel In The Wash For Starring Role At Heart Of Matt Biondi’s Haunt

Caeleb Dressel in the wash as a potential USA superstar of Biondi proportions - by Patrick B. Kraemer

Forget the G.O.A.T. We are looking at a different creature, albeit one with seven clear golden targets for Tokyo2020 – and even eight if he picks up pace over 200m free and finds a way to balance the load of what would be a monumentally difficult program. Think not Phelps (and why would you want to – a touch premature, to say the least, ponderance of 23 golds and 28 medals and the five-Olympic-rings cycle it all took to get there). Think, instead, Biondi when contemplating the prospects of Caeleb Dressel. Matt Biondi was a winner and medallist at Olympic and World levels over 50, 100, 200 free, 100 ‘fly and a giant of USA relays. You can see where this is going: snap. Except Dressel has a mixed medley relay to have a go at, too, come Tokyo.
