We’re back for the weekly installment of SwimSwam’s TopTenTweets, where we round up the best swimming-related tweets we can get our eyes on.

There’s a little of everything this week — from hype videos, to drills, to PSAs; scroll to see what topped the list!


Color us very impressed.


Hype video production value just keeps getting higher.


That’s it: we’re living in the future.


If Auburn “isn’t a training team” and trains this hard, we’re pumped to see them race.


Man vs. The World (or at least an equally-daunting early morning practice).


Let’s hope Ryan remembered to circle swim in reverse before he lapped the locals.


Technically from last week, this was RT’d by Olympian Shannon Vreeland on Monday and is a little too accurate.


Who needs a mirror when you’ve got Adam Peaty?


Don’t be like Gunnar and crash your moped. Do be like Gunnar and wear a helmet. Do picture 6′ 5″ Gunnar on a moped.


Making a swim-related username is practically a swimming rite of passage. Young Connor had big dreams and wasn’t afraid to show it — we’re sure he’d be pleased with an Olympic silver.

Byron bay awesome.

Col. Trautman

That’s great the NCAA has sanctioned Crossfit!

Seriously, what other collegiate sport emphasizes auxiliary training more than the primary sport? I will say I’m really enjoying watching Twitter accounts of Olympic power lifters swimming so they can lift heavier.


Powerlifting isn’t in the Olympics

^^This is correct. Using technical terminology, the Olympics do “weightlifting” versus “powerlifting.” This may vary from the colloquial uses at your local gym.


crossfit sucks
