US swim star Caeleb Dressel won two individual events and helped a relay victory Sunday for the Cali Condors in an International Swim League (ISL) meet.
The 23-year-old American, who won two relay gold medals at the Rio Olympics, won a record eight medals at this year's World Championships, six of them gold, after taking seven gold medals in the 2017 worlds.
The reigning world champion in the 50- and 100-meter freestyle and butterfly dominated for the second day in a row at the University of Maryland pool in suburban College Park, even though it was the Los Angeles Current that rallied for a 495-489.5 victory in the overall meet.
Dressel won the 100 free in 45.69 seconds, defeating runner-up and Cali teammate Kacper Majchrzak by 0.79 of a second, and took the 50 fly in 22.21, with Tom Shields of the Current second by 0.51.
