It is impossible to make Olympic Games 2021 swimming predictions without mentioning Katie Ledecky. The American swimmer won her first Olympic gold medal in 2012 and at the 2016 Rio games, she won four gold medals and one silver medal. Having won the women's 800m freestyle event at the London Olympics, Ledecky announced herself to the world as a 15-year-old. Look out for Ledecky in the women's 400m freestyle, 800m freestyle, 200m freestyle, and 4x200m freestyle relay event. Ledecky may also participate in the 4x100m freestyle relay race in an attempt to improve on the silver medal won by the United States in 2016.
I just keep setting goals for myself. That probably sounds easier said than done, but I have always had my eyes set on something more. I have my goals for Tokyo now, and that keeps me motivated. It's about winning more, certainly all that. - Katie Ledecky in an interview before the 2020 Olympics, Forbes
2. Betting Favourites for Swimming at Olympic Games 2020
Next in our swimming at Tokyo 2021 Olympics betting tips we come to another top American swimmer in Caeleb Dressel. He produced a tremendous performance at the 2019 World Championships, winning six titles and breaking several short-course records in the process. The great Michael Phelps retired at 2016 Rio Olympic Games but believes Dressel is the man to fill the gaping hole left by the legendary swimmer. Phelps thinks Dressel could match his 8 Olympic gold medal-haul in Tokyo and that would be an incredible achievement.
Most Gold Medals in Swimming at Summer Olympics
28 medals including 23 gold medals
12 medals including 8 gold medals
12 medals including 6 gold medals
11 medals including 9 gold medals
11 medals including 8 gold medals
Gary Hall Jr.
10 medals including 5 gold medals
The gold medal favourite in the 50 and 100 free, plus the 100 fly, Dressel will also participate in the relay events of the United States and has the potential to break several records at the 2021 Olympic Games.
3. Swimming Contenders at Olympics 2021
Continuing our betting predictions for swimming at Summer Olympics 2021 and we come to Sarah Sjostrom. The Swedish swimmer has won three Olympic medals and eight individual world titles yet remains one of the Summer Olympics 2021 swimming outsiders as no woman has successfully defended the 100 butterfly at the Olympic Games. That could be about to change in Tokyo and Sjostrom holds three long course world records in Olympic events and will be keen to break more records in 2021.
Moving back to male swimmers in our Olympic Games 2020 swimming picks and we must include Adam Peaty. The British swimmer stunned the world when he recorded a time of 56.88 at the 2019 Worlds in the 100 metre breaststroke and has to be the overwhelming favourite to win the event at the 2021 Olympic Games. Peaty will also be key to the chances of the UK winning a relay gold medal but they will come into the games as one of the Olympics 2021 swimming underdogs for the male relay races.
4. Summer Olympics 2020 Swimming Predictions
Back to the United States and Simone Manuel has to be up there when discussing who will be winners in swimming at Olympics 2020. The American swimmer is regarded by many as being the greatest American sprinter of all-time and that is some accolade. She won the last two World titles in the 100 free, in addition to the 2019 title in the 50. When it comes to the 50 and 100 freestyle, Manuel can get the job done when it matters most and it does not come much bigger than the Olympic Games.
