After reentry, what is the speed of the Dragon 2 capsule right before splashdown?

What g-force is received upon splashdown?

At the time of writing, this answer gives such information for many other crewed spacecraft but not the dragon (the answer is from Feb 18 2018).

It splashes down at 16 mph. That is 25.7 km/h or 7.2 m/s for metric. This was explained during the live broadcast of the Crew-5 mission.
