Caeleb Dressel will be a busy man in the coming days as the U.S. Olympic Trials (Wave II) begins. Arguably the most dominant male swimmer post-2016 Olympic Games, Caeleb Dressel, who specializes in sprint events, has entered in six events which will be held in Omaha.

What all events will Caeleb Dressel take part in at US Olympic Swimming Trials 2021

The first four events (50m freestyle, 100m freestyle, 200m freestyle and 100m butterfly) were a no-brainer given his specialization in these two styles. Caeleb Dressel is a two-time defending world champion in the 50m freestyle, 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly.

He will be the favorite to win gold at the Tokyo Olympics, if he manages to qualify at the trials.

As for the 200m freestyle, on the other hand, Caeleb Dressel plans to compete in the 800m freestyle relay. This would strengthen the possibility of him doing so if he grabs the position in 200m freestyle, according to multiple reports.

Interestingly, he has never represented the U.S. in the 800m relay event at an international event. With a personal best of 1:47:31 in the 200m freestyle, he is the 11th seed.
