Swimming’s TopTenTweets: Quite the Shindig

We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. It was a big week for USA Swimming, which held the Golden Goggles in New York Monday Night; so from golden highlights to Thanksgiving traditions, scroll to see what made the cut!


Do it for the kids!


One of these things is not like the other…


Never too late to follow your dreams.


Division III was in the house at the Golden Goggles. We’ve truly seen it all in 2018. #hero


Those of us ages approximately 20-24 can relate.


We give them straight tens.


The ratio of veggie trays to dessert plates seems off IMO.

While your comment toward Andrew Wilson attending GG and representing DIII is in jest, I personally think that that demeans the DIII swimming community in some respect. Yes, it’s not likely that DIII will be pumping out national team members each year but what is the necessity of these comments? Justice and respect for DIII.

Knights in White Satin

Is there a more sensitive group of people on earth than D3 swimmers? Any time D3 is mentioned, D3 swimmers seem to come rolling in, white knights, swords a-flying, talking about how little respect they get.

PS – I clicked Torrey Hart’s bio…she’s a D3 swimmer. So…awkward?


There was a DIII swimmer on the 56 and 60 team from Cortland State NY. Of course there was no distinction then but still no scholarships. Had to swim the only NCAA’s there was.


Forgot about Bill Yorzyk in 1956 Gold Medal in the first 200 fly and World Record.
Springfield College graduate.
