Weekends are times when some people struggle for motivation. Caeleb Dressel apparently has no such issues.
On Saturday, the American swimmer broke two world records as he competed in the International Swimming League final in Budapest, Hungary.Dressel smashed the previous 100-meter butterfly world record of 48.08 seconds to 47.78, pushed by previous holder Chad Le Clos, in turn becoming the first man ever to complete the 100-meter butterfly in under 48 seconds.Then, around 40 minutes later, he returned to the pool to reduce his own 50-meter freestyle world record time by 0.08 from 20.24 seconds to 20.16."It was a really exciting day, and I'm so pleased with the times," the 24-year-old told BBC Sport afterwards."It's like an amusement park for swimmers, and I'm loving it at the ISL this season, but we want to win this as a team -- that's the end goal."Read MoreREAD: Tokyo 2020: From Biles to skateboarding -- here's what we missedDressel during the men's 4x100m Medley Relay Final.Dressel's sublime speed helped his team, Cali Condors, to a first-day lead over defending champions Energy Standard, with London Roar third and LA Current fourth.The ISL is contested in a shorter, 25-meter pool.
