Not since 2007 has one man concurrently owned the quickest instances in historical past in all three variations of the competitors pool: brief course yards, brief course meters, and lengthy course meters. That man was Ian Crocker.
Immediately, Caeleb Dressel turns into the primary man since Crocker in March 2007 to concurrently personal the quickest instances in historical past within the 100 butterfly in brief course yards, brief course meters, and lengthy course meters following his World Record performance in the 100 SCM butterfly on the ISL Grand Ultimate in Budapest.

Le Clos and Shields additionally put up a number of the quickest instances in historical past, clocking in at 48.45 and 48.47, respectively. Le Clos is now the second-fastest man in historical past whereas Shields stays the third-fastest, passing Russian Evgeny Korotyshkin however being handed himself by Dressel, however sufficient with immediately’s occasions, let’s take a look at the historic significance of Dressel’s efficiency.
In 2002, Ian Crocker broke the NCAA, U.S. Open, and American Report within the 100 fly for the primary time, clocking a 45.44. In 2004 Crocker would decrease this mark to a 44.72 on the Massive 12 Championships. Within the 12 months between, Crocker grew to become the World Report holder within the 100 LCM butterfly on the 2003 World Championships in Barcelona, additionally incomes the title of first man underneath 51 within the race.
The 2004 NCAA Championships had been held in a brief course meters pool, making it not possible for Crocker to decrease his yards report any additional that season, although it gave him the chance to go after one thing better, the World Report.
On the 2004 NCAA Championships, Crocker squared-off with then-World Report holder within the 100 SCM butterfly, Serbian Milorad Cavic who swam for Cal-Berkeley. Crocker broke Cavic’s report in each prelims and finals, first registering a 49.77 to develop into the primary man underneath 50, after which taking it down once more to 49.07 in finals, beating Cavic by nearly 2 seconds.
With this, Crocker had accomplished the trifecta and now owned the 100 butterfly data in all three swimming pools. Crocker would maintain this esteemed place till March 2007 and the NCAA Championships when his yards time was bested by Venezuelan and Arizona Wildcat Albert Subirats with a 44.57. Simply a few weeks later, Subirats would win the bronze medal on the 2007 World Championships behind Crocker, who took silver, and Michael Phelps, who received gold.

It’s price noting that Crocker broke the World Report within the 100 LCM butterfly 3 times, the 100 SCM butterfly two instances, and the American, NCAA, and U.S. Open, data within the 100 yard butterfly two instances. (Additionally it is true that Crocker broke the NCAA and U.S. Open Data within the 100 SCM butterfly twice since these races befell at an NCAA Championship, however let’s preserve issues easy.)
Because the desk reveals, Crocker was the quickest 100 butterflyer in historical past in all three swimming pools concurrently from July 2003 to March 2007.

As of this writing, November 21, 2020, Dressel is concurrently the quickest 100 butterflyer of all time in all three swimming pools. He should preserve these titles for three years, eight months, and 10 days as a way to match Crocker’s reign as the last word king of the 100 butterfly.
Dressel’s Report Progressions
Like Crocker, Dressel’s first report to fall to a different swimmer is almost definitely to be his SCY mark at 42.80 because the NCAA is a stress cooker of insanely quick swimming. Dressel’s LCM report might be most secure, and he stands the perfect probability of reducing it between now and the following ISL season. He’s unlikely to ever swim a 100 SCY butterfly absolutely tapered once more, so it’s troublesome to see him reducing his greatest time of 42.80 in yards, although professionals do often shock us with spectacular yards swims. As for his model new SCM report, it’s in all probability protected till not less than the following ISL Ultimate or FINA World Championship (SCM version). World Data are generally crushed in FINA World Cup competitors, however the time he put up immediately is thus far forward of everybody else who has ever swam the race, it’s protected to wager it’ll in all probability stand for some time.
