10/10 use of this Twitter trope.
I just raced my 14 y/o daughter on a 50 free from the block
I told her if she beat me the whole team could play games & do relays
She beat her best time by half a second ?♀️?♀️?

Whether she’s in the pool or on the court, Simone Manuel will come up big when the pressure is on.

While Michael and Cesar weren’t exactly rivals, we’re already excited for whatever version of a Phelps-Cielo showdown manifests in 2032.
