Gold medallist swimmer Caeleb Dressel has trained his dog to race like an Olympian. Look at the pooch go:


American Dressel has struck gold five times at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and has now got his dog swimming like...Caeleb Dressel.

The family have named their dog Jane and it seems like she could be about to steal their thunder.

The video begins with the Jane (a black labrador) about to leap off the diving board, looking just as focused as Dressel in Tokyo.

"Someone check the time to 25, she's built to float not for speed," the swimmer said in his Instagram caption.

The labrador then absolutely belts it down the swimming lane at an unbelievable pace.

The US swimmer posted the video on social media yesterday (Aug 13) and has already racked up over 579,000 views.

Users in the comments section were loving it and fellow Olympic athletes seemed hugely impressed.

Australian Olympian Kyle Chalmers wrote: "So you're not the only Dressel that would smoke me to 25."

While gold medal winner Robert Finke added: "Start is still better than mine."

A final user concluded: "This instantly made my day better."

While dogs are loved by many, it's hard to believe just what some are capable of.

Recently, a 'superhero' dog was seen helping two women to safety after their car got stuck in flood waters in Glasgow, having teamed up with its owner to push the vehicle to safety.

When two people found themselves stuck in their car, a woman called Lori Gillies came to their rescue - along with her dog, Puck.

Incredible footage shows as Gillies starts pushing them out of the deep flood waters to higher ground, while her pet swims around her.

Suddenly, Puck decides to stop larking about and moves over to the car, putting its front paws onto the back to begin pushing with Gillies.
