Swimming’s TopTenTweets: Anders is Watching Swimming

We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets presented by Arena, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. From the only acceptable reason to talk during a kick set, to an #accurate comic, scroll to see what made the cut!

Featured Instagram Post of the Week:

We’re gonna need some more context.


Any time a swimmer gets recognized in public is a win for us all.




Pretty wild.




Can anyone name some others who did this?


If Connor’s plan was to go full “Moneyball” on the field… kudos. Though having Katie Ledecky helps a little too, I guess.


So much respect.


It’s really not swimming’s championship season until Anders Holm is watching.

Joel Lin

Ous Mellouli did it.
As noted below, Park also did it.


Thorpe probably did it at 16

Ders was 20 point back in the day.

Old Man Chalmers

Hackett did it with a flying start in the 100, not sure about his time on a flat start though.


I’m sure Dean Farris could do it
