Caeleb outclassed his opponents, breaking world records, including his own. Having an Olympic champion at home must be an influence on the Dressel family to swim. Apparently, Caeleb has been training his dog in the same way as an Olympic swimmer.

Dressel posted a video of his dog swimming in the pool with him. While he is the fastest man, his dog has stunned everyone with her speed.

Caeleb Dressel posts video with his swimming champion

The current world’s fastest swimmer’s beloved labrador named Jane had fun with the Olympic medalist in the pool. Caeleb showed off his dog’s incredible swimming skills.

Dressel posted the video on his Instagram saying ‘ Someone check the time to 25, she’s built to float not for speed.’ The interesting race took place at the Florida Gators 50-meter outdoor pool.

Jane stunningly chased Caeleb with her extraordinary speed in a 25-meter race and finally caught the world’s fastest. Caeleb’s water dog chased him easily with her fast speed. Notably, she started the race from a block, which itself is impressive.

Olympic gold medalist Robert Finke commented on Jane’s speed

Jane’s speed also stunned Tokyo Olympics gold medalist USA’s Robert Finke. He commented, ” Start is still better than mine.” It’s a tremendous compliment coming from a recent Olympic gold medalist in the 800m and 1500m freestyle race.

Caeleb’s furry companion’s start was insanely perfect as she tucked her paws before jumping. It looks like she had been doing the Olympic training alongside Dressel. Other swimming stars like Sarah Sjostrom also commented saying, “Amazing, she would crush me in 25m for sure.”

Sarah is a Swedish swimmer and the current world record holder in the 100-meter freestyle, the 50-meter butterfly, and the 200-meter freestyle. At Tokyo Olympics, she clinched the silver medal in women’s 50m freestyle swimming.
