We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. Friday was national Olympic Day, and many of your favorite swimmers took to social media (mostly Instagram, so we had to cheat) to celebrate. Scroll for the highlights!
Happy Olympic Day!

We couldn’t have said it better, Maya.
That’s a big smile on an already very-smiley person.
GRATEFUL EVERYDAY‼️ As I reflect on 2008, 2012, & 2016… I can’t help but smile looking back on pictures and remembering all those who helped me get to that point, those who I experienced it with, and those who I had the privilege to meet in the process. Today, I am grateful to have the opportunity to continue training. It was a very humbling morning to be included in the group of thirteen athletes and two coaches who are training at the Olympic Training Center and were apart of the 2016 US Olympic team. I’m blessed to be training with an amazing group of dedicated, hard working athletes and I look forward to whatever this journey may bring 🌟 much much love to my family, teammates, coaches, friends, fans, sponsors, and TEAM USA 🇺🇸 you all have made this journey possible ❤️ #olympicday
Bonus points for stylistic prowess.
I have been so blessed to be able to represent my country in my own way. Wearing @TeamUSA on my back is a privilege i never take for granted and I’ve been in some high pressure situations! 😁 Happy #olympicday #paraolympic day! pic.twitter.com/CjzfQoPDAM
