Swimming’s TopTenTweets of the Week: #4 HBD Katie Ledecky!


Community service is important for anyone, and it feels good to give back. Here’s a shot of USC sprinter Evan Swenson with the kiddies.


Now THAT’S some serious progression.


Make that TWO second swims for Purdue senior Emily Fogle! Congratulations on a great career; after pushing through multiple hip surgeries, the passing of her mother, and an eating disoder, Fogle is an inspiration to the swimming and sport community in general. All-American in her senior year after all of that adversity!


Danielle Galyer won the Elite 90 Award, given to the athlete with the highest GPA at an NCAA Championship site, and then became the first Kentucky swimmer in history to win an individual NCAA title.


Too cute. Amy Bilquist, Cal freshman, put up a 4th place finish in the 100 back and a 5th place finish in the 200 back, along with contributing on relays, to help push Cal to a 3rd place finish at NCAAs this weekend.




Happy birthday Miss Ledecky!


Congrats to Mireia Belmonte and the birth of her nephew. Belmonte was busy swimming this weekend, including putting up a huge 200 fly at Spanish Nationals. Her time of 2:06.34 rockets her to the #1 time in the world this season.


And Beisel’s answer…?

And there you have it. Gregg Troy for the win.


It’s the first day of spring, which means summer is officially the next season. Which means Rio is that much closer. Get psyched.
