American Caeleb Dressel sets a world record en route to his 3rd gold medal, and Katie Ledecky caps her Olympics with a win in the 800 freestyle

Continuing his march to being perhaps the biggest star of the Tokyo Games, Dressel won his third gold medal with a world record in the 100-meter butterfly Saturday.

About 20 minutes later, Ledecky claimed her expected gold in the 800 freestyle, though she was pushed hard by Australian rival Ariarne Titmus.

Ledecky finished with two golds, two silvers and a fifth-place finish at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre.

Dressel led from the start and held off Hungary’s Kristof Milak to touch in 49.45 seconds, breaking the mark of 49.50 that the American set at the 2019 world championships in Gwangju.
