Swimmers Taking Selfies at the Churchill Downs Racetrack (Video)

While SwimSwam was covering the 2018 TYR Derby Pro, we followed the athletes and coaches after the meet all the way to the iconic Churchill Downs Racetrack. While there, a group of the pros took advantage of the setting, and did what anyone would do in their situation. They took selfies.

When they’re all dressed up for the races (horse races that is), they’ll document it just as much as any of our generation.
