He won gold medals for Team USA in the following races at this year’s FINA World Championships: 50 meter freestyle, 100 meter freestyle, 50 meter butterfly, 100 meter butterfly, as well as the 4×100 meter freestyle and the 4×100 meter mixed freestyle relays. His two silver medals were in the following relay races: 4×100 meter medley and the 4×100 meter mixed medley.

Dressel has won a total of 13 gold medals at the World Championship level and he ranks third in the all-time lists for the most gold medals wins in the history of the FINA World Championships in a long course pool. He is only behind Ryan Lochte, who has earned 18 gold medals, and Michael Phelps, who has garnered 26 gold medals.
