Having won five Olympic gold medals, Team USA swimmer Caeleb Dressel sat down with TODAY’s Craig Melvin in Tokyo before heading home to the U.S. “It was really fun competing: This is the pinnacle of our sport,” he says. He also comments on Simone Biles’ decision to withdraw from Olympic events: “I’m OK with the call that Simone did … just leave her alone.” He rejects comparisons of himself to Michael Phelps, saying, “It’s not fair to Michael, it’s not fair to me.”
