American Caeleb Dressel on Saturday won his third gold medal of the Tokyo Olympics with a world record in the 100-meter butterfly.

Dressel led right from the start and held off Hungary’s Kristof Milak to win in 49.45 seconds, breaking the mark of 49.50 that he set two years ago at the 2019 world championships.

This is what winners and champions do. Incredible stuff. The best of humanity.

Members of the US swimming team have already publicly stated that this sport is tainted by doping.

Members of the US swimming team have already publicly stated that this sport is tainted by doping.

Tainting of which couldn't possibly include any members of the US team, right? Clean as a whistle; beyond all doubt.

When asked if this race was tainted, a representative for the US team simply looked at our reporter with disdain and started chanting "USA! USA!" in loud voice.

This is just superb this morning for all involved. So much to watch.

I just shake my head wondering if all those in intensive care with Covid around the world were forced to watch this on the tv in their hospital room, and with no strength to reach the remote to cancel the tv and this horrible virus spreading event.

Looked like over one hundred sightseeing people at the beach this morning. All wearing Olympic badges. All gaijin. All no masks.

We live in at a Terrible time.

Enjoy your butterfly menu, get on the jet and go home.

This is outrageous, clear proof there's no bubble. If you go tomorrow morning please take some photographs, mosaic out their faces and upload them somewhere everyone can share them. Which beach is it, by the way? Thanks.

Well, to be honest, after Australia's Mack Horton's hissy fit with China's Sun Yang, he sure was very very quiet too when it soon turned out that swimmers from his own country were caught out doping.

I think you missed the memo. We're apparently supposed to "celebrate" these people because of their talents in being born with freakish genetic good luck and the means to have access to the best facilities and coaches on the planet.

The regular Joes and Janes are, figuratively and literally, cannon fodder for these superstars who represent the "greatest of humanity".

Go U.S.A.! Great work by Ledecky getting revenge. Dressel is a beast!!

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

no doping involved?

just wondering if this was a "clear won",but possibly yes as he is american and there was no russian around...?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

Shouldn’t the Russians be voicing their concerns?

It’s rather suspicious

Shouldn’t the Russians be voicing their concerns?

Да, товарищ!

Yes, Comrade!

It took a World Record for Dressel to go 5-for-5!

Ledecky in the 800m has the Top 23 times in the history of the women event - it's amazing nobody else has managed to slip a top time in there! Now she's the first female swimmer to earn 6 individual Olympic golds

The Australians have won six women’s swimming gold medals in Tokyo and seven golds overall.

The women are carrying Australia.

Would anyone else here be offended if Team USA is congratulated in equal fashion to the other countries’ teams within their relative threads?

BAM! Dressel does it AGAIN in the 50 m FS!

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

TEAM USA deserves a lot of credit, especially since the time zone difference with Japan is so severe compared to what other athletes from other countries contend with.

USA!

BOOM! Finke gets gold in the 1500m free!

Cha ching! Gold rush for the USA today!

U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!
