Swimming’s TopTenTweets: Adam Peaty is Skeptical

We’re back with swimming’s top 10 tweets, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. From great swim relatives to Caeleb Dressel’s key to success, scroll to see what made the cut!


Shoutout to all the swim moms out there.


We hope all swim brothers take note of Michael Ledecky.


We do, obviously.


Only a 2-sport gold medalist could make this choice even remotely hard for us.


Oh, we’re thinking about it.


There is almost no Olympic stat that would make Michael Phelps seem less amazing.


And got a little bit better than “good.”


Floyd and Jack, BFFs.


Words of wisdom from one of the happiest swimmers alive, presumably.


Best use of this GIF… ever?

Yeah, I think Peaty has earned the right to be skeptical in the 100 breast. My guess is that CD could do a 58.- 100 breast. Certainly world class, but not close to Peaty. Would love to see them race at worlds


I’d love to see these two square off in SCM, but I think LCM would be a non-event. Don’t think Dressel would translate to LC as well as in the free and fly where his crawl and dolphin are world class apart from just his starts/underwaters. Dressel would do well to break the 1min barrier. But I doubt he would trouble a peak Cordes in LC.


That response by Peaty is not only warranted but hilarious. I would love to see that race, but Peaty definitely has it.


In all honesty, that comparison was good until it compared Dressels speed into the wall to peatys, because obvious the speed at the end of a lcm lap is comparable to the speed at the end of a scm lap.
