Caeleb Dressel shows off his swimming technique

After the Tokyo Olympics, Dressel took a much-needed break. He enjoyed the fruits of his labor and even donned a new look with a stylish mustache. After all the fun and frolic, now he is back in the pool. In his latest swimming video on Instagram, he shows off his turns under the water and how he practices it with other competitors.

While other competitors are struggling hard to match his pace, Dressel just keeps flipping without even taking a stroke. Truly stunning.

The push underwater is one of the most important aspects of swimming. Phelps perfected that ability to reach ahead of his competitors, who had already started stroking. Likewise, Dressel has learned that ability perfectly.

The underwater technique is one of the most effective and underrated techniques in the world. Most often, the best swimmers perfect this to get a head start from their opponents.
