Living up to the hype: Caeleb Dressel win 1st individual gold medal

TOKYO — In an Olympics where many of the favorites have faltered, Caeleb Dressel lived up to the hype.

Dressel claimed the first individual Olympic gold medal of his career with two furious laps of the pool Thursday morning, winning the 100-meter freestyle over defending champion Kyle Chalmers.

As is his style, Dressel dove into the pool and came up with the lead. He was still ahead at the lone flip, and turned away the Aussie’s bid for a second straight gold.

Panthers’ Christian McCaffrey still confident after injury-marred 2020

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — A year ago, Christian McCaffrey said he would choose himself if he had the top pick in a fantasy football draft. That move wouldn’t have worked out too well.

McCaffrey missed 13 games with injuries in 2020, but his confidence level hasn’t changed entering this season.

“I think the same way,” McCaffrey said Wednesday.

The 25-year-old McCaffrey appears to be healthy and back to full speed.
