Swimming’s TopTenTweets: A Flawless Week

We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. From some classic #TBTs to honor Michael Phelps‘ 33rd birthday and the 10 year anniversary of the 2008 US Olympic Trials, to Gary Taylor confirming he’s a distance coach (wink wink), scroll to see what made the cut!



Everyone’s reaction in one tweet. #KeepItMoving.




This was some truly suspenseful racing. Also, Brock Bonetti is a multiple time All-American and races Olympians all the time.


Blazing fast. Additional shoutout to the extremely fast Andrii Govorov, who broke a world record Sunday but had no tweets to show for it.


“It’s just a bronze.”


Power towers claim another victim!


A quality #TBT.


Because TopTenTweets has been lacking words of wisdom as of late.


We can always talk about this.


It’s rare that a swim-related tweet truly goes viral, but this one sure did. This is Christian’s second stint on TopTenTweets – don’t forget us when you’re famous!
