Caeleb Dressel also added another individual event to his Paris Olympics schedule by winning the 100m Butterfly event with an impressive time of 50.19. Day 9, the last day of the trials, is also expected to witness exciting performances like these, with the finals of the Women's 50m Freestyle and Men's 1500m Freestyle scheduled for June 23.
