Jane shows off her power in the water as she cuts through the swim lane like a little torpedo. Dressel posted his video to his Instagram page and immediately, it went viral.

A lot of his followers, including other fellow Olympic athletes, were quite impressed by Jane’s swimming abilities. The video quickly gained more than half a million views, as well as hundreds of comments.


Kylie Chalmers, an Australian Olympian, joked, “So you’re not the only Dressel that would smoke me to 25.”

Another gold medal winner, Robert Finke, commented, “Start is still better than mine.”

Of course, another commentator said that we’re all thinking: “This instantly made my day better.”
