Witnessing Greatness

Today Caeleb Dressel from the Univ of Fla swam 17.63 for the 50 yard freestyle at the Men’s NCAA Swimming and Diving Champs #mensncaaswimdive His margin of victory was 1.01 seconds over second place and Olympic gold medalist Ryan Held of NC State! For perspective on this effort by Caeleb, the difference between 2nd place and 40th place was .99 seconds.   Had I not witnessed it in person, I’m not sure I would believe the result. Kudos to Ryan Held for practically diving over the lane line to congratulate Caeleb! #sportsmanship See the swim at my instagram @mymainset and just listen for that quiet moment as everyone in the place turns their heads to see the scoreboard, and the eruption to follow. Goosebumps.
