    Dressel broke the U.S. Open, NCAA, and American Records in the 200 yard IM
    On Top Again: Caeleb Dressel Goes 1:38 200 Yard IM

    University of Florida senior Caeleb Dressel has stamped his name atop another all-time list with a 1:38.13 in the 200 IM on Thursday at the 2018 SEC Championship Meet. In his first individual swim of the meet (he forsook his 50 free, where he’s also the best of all-time, to swim the 200 IM), he surpassed David Nolan’s US Open, NCAA, and American Records of 1:39.38.

    Dressel also broke Texas A&M’s Pool Record of 1:40.09 set by fellow Gator Bradley Ally at the 2009 NCAA Championship meet. The old SEC Meet Record was a 1:41.28 done by Georgia’s Chase Kalisz at the 2017 edition. Kalisz carried on to win the 200 IM and 400 IM titles at the 2017 World Championships.
