We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. The week was defined by the World Anti-Doping Agency’s decision to reinstate RUSADA, and Twitter reacting accordingly; so from that Kathleen Baker‘s homey meal, scroll to see what made the cut!

Any swimmer with long hair understands this is a true work of art.
You must not have seen the 4:01 I dropped at Canadian trials only months earlier… https://t.co/Wb4MO5GEOl

What happens in Canada stays in Canada.

Didn’t know I followed so many TYR swimmers until they all asked me if I’m ready!!! Now I’m stressed out 😰😂

We’re at least ready to know what we should be ready for…

We’d definitely be ready for this.

Couldn’t have explained it better ourselves!

Meal of champions.

A very Zach Harting problem.
And finally, just a small sample of swimmers worldwide who voiced that disdain for the World Anti-doping Agency’s decision to reinstate RUSADA.
Very disappointed for the clean athletes who have to deal with the repercussions of this decision. Oh well, beating the cheaters straight up is more fun anyway🤷🏼♀️ https://t.co/Ui0xxc4w1s

Disgusting. So disappointed in this. It’s unfair to all of the athletes who train and compete clean. https://t.co/WKAnY7ytVQ
