Swimming’s TopTenTweets: Swimmers Show Out for Olympic Day

We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets presented by Arena, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. It was Olympic Day Sunday, and swimmers stood out in their plentiful posts about the milestone – which just happened to be almost exactly a year from finals. Additionally, swimming stole the show in responses to the official Team USA inquiry about favorite Olympic moments, which warmed our hearts. We wouldn’t dare rank swimmers’ personal Olympic experiences, so this week, we’re just giving you a roundup of some highlights, in no particular order.

Happy #olympicday – The #Olympic Games means family to me… friendships all around the world. The medals matter less overtime. The friendships endure with more and more meaning…. That reminds me of how the modern #olympics began as a deterrent to war, a way to bring nations together in celebration of life through sport. I would like for that message to be more front and center in these divided times.
