Caeleb Dressel Olympics Odds: The Heir To Michael Phelps & Favored To Win At Least 2 Gold Medals

With Michael Phelps retired and the likes of Ryan Lochte and Nathan Adrian not appearing in Tokyo, all eyes and focus will be on American swimming’s new star; Caeleb Dressel. Dressel amassed 13 gold medals in the 2017 and 2019 world championships and will be looking to add to his tally of 2 Olympic golds in Tokyo over the coming days.

This will be Caeleb Dressel’s second Olympic Games and the first with all the pressure and hype surrounding him. He has the chance to become one of the stars of the Games for Team USA, but he is yet to even win an individual gold medal at an Olympics and that will be his first priority in Tokyo.
