Participants70 from 62 countries

This event was expected to be a battle between the defending gold medalist and 2018 Pan Pac Champion, Australian Kyle Chalmers and American Caeleb Dressel, the 2017 and 2019 World Champion. Both qualified for the final, although Chalmers was only sixth in the semi-finals and was pushed out to lane seven for the final. Dressel had the second fastest time in the semis, trailing Kliment Kolesnikov of the ROC Team.

Dressel got off to his usual explosive start in the final and led at the turn, with 22.39 to Kolesnikov’s 22.49, as Chalmers stood third in 22.71 with nobody else really in medal contention. Chalmers closed the fastest, finishing in 24.37 for 47.08, but Dressel could not be caught, narrowly winning the gold medal in 47.02, as Kolesnikov took bronze. This was the first of Dressel’s five golds and three individual golds in Tokyo. He would later win the 100 butterfly and the 50 freestyle. Chalmers would add two bronze medals in relays at the 2020 Olympics.
