Swimming’s TopTenTweets: Life Was Harsh for David Marsh

We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets of the week. If you haven’t noticed, David Marsh has been killing the Twitter game in his return to college swimming — so much so that he took two out of the top 10 spots this week. From Golden Goggles attire to some impressive age groupers, scroll to see what made the cut!

That’s not Marsh trolling a little video there. Oh no, nope, not at all.

David Marsh knows exactly what he’s doing. Always.
