There is a reason Dressel is being called the new Michael Phelps. He was basically unbeatable, even though Chalmers came so, so close to doing so. Chalmers started a little back, made the turn in third and it was only in the final 20m or so that he overtook Kolesnikov and was stroke for stroke with Dressel. He touched the wall 0.06 seconds after the American and that time, 47.08, is actually equal to Chalmers’s personal best, so it’s hard to argue he could have swum faster.
1 Dressel – 47.02 (Olympic record)
2 Chalmers – 47.08
3 Kolesnikov – 47.44
