Caeleb Dressel’s girlfriend Meghan Haila recently referred to herself as a, “bundle of emotions”. She was already feeling this way and hadn’t even left the United States for Rio. Most Olympic wives, girlfriends, husbands and boyfriends can relate to this feeling. For the last several weeks, her Twitter feed has been almost non-stop posts about packing and feeling nervous!
I can hardly imagine how nerve racking it must be to try and support a significant other training for the Olympics. After all, there really isn’t much that you can do other than support them mentally. Maybe do the dishes more often too. Take out the garbage so they don’t have to – that kind of thing.
As is so common in sports, Caeleb Dressel’s girlfriend Meghan Haila is also a swimmer. It actually makes a lot of sense that swimmers end up dating each other. Never mind the physical proximity to each other, but the idea that they really do know what the other is going through is so important.
She swims for Florida State University and recently competed at the 2015 ACC Championships in the 200 IM, 100 and 200 breast races. While in high school, Meghan was a two-time state champion in the 100 breast and All-American for Creekside High School. She was also a four-time finalist in the 100 breast at the state meet while in high school.
In an odd side note, it seems that Meghan has a cat with a bed peeing problem. Is this common with cats? Are there people nationwide suffering from random bouts of cats peeing in their beds? Is this something that you notice when you go to bed at night? Or when you wake up in the morning?
Meghan recently tweeted:
So someone from Germany mailed a letter to me at work asking for @caelebdressel to sign some stuff. This is all so unreal.
Sorry Meghan, but I have a feeling this post might result in a few more letters.
