Olympics 2021 updates: Caeleb Dressel, Bobby Finke cap historic week, plus more from Tokyo


It’s Day 9 in Tokyo and the final day of what has been a lucrative location for Team USA: The pool. With five finals to go tonight, Team USA has a whopping 26 total medals, including eight golds at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.

Highlighting tonight’s action will be Caeleb Dressel, one of the biggest stars of these games. Dressel has three gold medals already, including an Olympic record in the 100-meter freestyle and and world record in the 100-meter butterfly to go along with his 4×100-meter relay gold. Tonight he’ll compete in the always wild 50-meter freestyle final and 4×100 medley relay.

Elsewhere, gold medals will be awarded in both tennis and golf and the day in Tokyo will be capped by annointing the fastest man in the world title to the winner of the 100 meters on the track.
