We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets presented by Arena, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse.
Featured Instagram Post of the Week:
Is it juggling, is it lap swimming?! “Swuggling” is now a thing at Colman Pool! pic.twitter.com/LubsBm2qdi

Impressive coordination from anyone with any inclination to swim.
This video was really *THE* thing for a few months there.
8 minute walk, or a 3 min jog, or a 1.5 min Sprint. I'll let you decide which one I did https://t.co/25lexwRcZD

And they say swimmers can’t run.
Non-breaststrokers to breaststrokers:
“So how’s my breaststroke look?”

Breaststrokers are the real MVP.
Our top six tweets of the week pertain to U.S. National Team-er Justin Wright‘s reaction following his 200 fly at the 2019 Pro Swim Series stop in Clovis last weekend, in which he took second (1:58.62) to Gianluca Urlando, who broke Michael Phelps‘ 17-18 200 fly National Age Group record in a stunning 1:53.84.
Wright captured his (presumed) reaction to seeing Urlando’s time in GIF form, so as promised (see below), we’ve rounded up the best captions.
Willing to dedicate the entirety of Sunday's TopTenTweets to this if swim fans come up big ⬇️ https://t.co/ol1PIW2oTz

When you thought the coach wrote "1×200 fly" on the board, but it was really "7×200 fly."

Gotta love a coach who doesn’t cross their sevens…
Looking up at the scoreboard and seeing that Sarah sjöström is still faster in a 100 fly than I am
