Like father, like … dog?
We all know Caeleb Dressel is an otherworldly swimmer. If you somehow missed the whole “he won five gold medals in the pool at the Tokyo Olympics” thing, you’ll just have to take our word for it. But we’ve undoubtedly been sleeping on his four-legged companion.
Dressel often speaks about his beloved black labrador, Jane. After one of his copious gold-medal winning performances (slight flex), the swimmer explained that he couldn’t wait to be reunited with his furry friend. But he failed to mention that she can turn on the jets in the pool just like her dear, old dog dad.
In a video posted to his Instagram account, Dressel revealed that Jane not only has excellent starting form off the block, but can MOVE.
Did you see that impeccable starting technique? She had her paws tucked under the lip and all. They don’t teach that at doggy daycare.
Even fellow Team USA swimmer, Bobby Finke — who won the gold in the 800m and 1500m freestyle in Tokyo — conceded, “Start is still better than mine” in the comments section.
Somebody get this good girl an exemption for the Paris Games.
