Caeleb Dressel, Katie Ledecky on hand for Gators’ game vs Vanderbilt

The Florida Gators thought maybe some Olympic gold (and silver and bronze) may help them bounce back from last week’s loss to Kentucky.

Tokyo Olympics swimming gold medalists Caeleb Dressel and Bobby Finke were on the field prior to today’s game at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium against the Vanderbilt Commodores to serve as the Gators’ “Mr. Two Bits”, along with bronze medalists Kieran Smith and Natalie Hinds.

“It was fun, very exciting,” said Finke of the experience. “Super honored to be able to do that with this group of people.”

Finke, who is a senior on Florida’s swim team, bagged two gold medals in the 800 and 1500-meter freestyle during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in July. 

Also on hand were Tokyo silver medalists Grant Holloway (hurdles), Mark Kolozsvary (baseball) and Aubree Munro (softball) and bronze medalist Taylor Manson, who ran in the mixed-gender 4×400 relay.
