Oh, and can we add that she is a teenager, was the top five in the world in the 1500, and swam her first 25K at the world’s biggest swimming event outside of the Olympics? This thread got big. Lots of blue checkmarks in that man’s mentions.

Many levels of SwimSwam comment culture at work here.

From Durden’s pure excitement to the four guys immediately jumping to pick him up (and of course Carr’s very fast swim), we love every single part of this. Our Instagram post of the same video was our sixth most-liked post in the last year.

PK Doesn't Like His Long Name

Madison’s should be number 1, that was the SwimSwam comment section twitter moment of the year. And Bryce’s would make a perfect 20th.

How much did Madison pay you to say this

IU Swammer

Justin Wright: admits to not touching a single wall in 200 fly with two hands

SwimSwam commenters: lol

Lilly King: dq’d on a close call for non-simultaneous touch

SwimSwam commenters: SHE’S A CHEATER!! SHE’S ALWAYS BEEN A CHEATER!! OFF WITH HER HEAD!!

Where did the joseph schooling practice joke come from? I see it many times here

Back at 2017 US Nationals, Caeleb Dressel swam 50.87 in the 100m fly, which was a big surprise. Note that before therace, we always thought he was a free sprinter. A few days/weeks later, Joe claimed that he swam a 50.7 at practice in reaction to Caeleb’s swim but he has yet to swim that kind of time in a meet. Basically, Joe is being mocked every time that kind of comment is made.

The perfect high elbow
