Swimming
GOLD: Caeleb Dressel (United States) — 50m freestyle (Final) — 21.07 (1st) [OR]

Though silver was not the goal entering Tokyo and these Gators largely struggled to find success at the plate, the entire American team had significant offensive issues that led to them winning close games, often in the latter innings.
