The Olympian arrived in Tokyo, clean-shaven, focused on the task ahead. Notably, he took home five gold medals as he put on a dominant performance. Deservingly so, after performing terrifically well, he is now enjoying the fruits of his labor, spending Christmas back home with his family.

His mustache is a reminder of why he is was voted as the ‘Se***st Olympian’ by the People’s magazine. He also captioned the post about how this was their first Christmas together.

“First Christmas with matching last names,” he said.

While famous swimmer Katie Ledecky liked the post, a host of other people commented on Caeleb’s stache. Notably, he and Meghan were high-school sweethearts and tied the knot back in February this year.

While a young Dressel was shy of the cameras, he spoke about dreading to wear speedos back in the day. He recollected how swimming was not considered a famous sport back then and how he refrained from competing in races, wearing a speedo.

“I had the glasses, I wasn’t in a cool sport, I was super skinny, lanky, so, of course, that’s the perfect concoction for being a pretty big weirdo about yourself,” said Dressel.
