Motion to make this a real event?


Ok yeah, superhuman isn’t quite the right word; but you know that’s a BRICK in Antonio Brown’s hands, right??


Life comes at you FAST.


This has got to be a good feeling, Cody!


So… that’s a yes?


As we always say, swimming on TV is an instant TTT.


How dare they.


Mic. Drop.




Oh, and can we add that she is a teenager, in the top five in the world in the 1500, and swam this race – her first 25K – at the world’s biggest swimming event outside of the Olympics? This thread got big. Lots of blue checkmarks in that man’s mentions.

Playing any sport (as in just participating) is easy. Although marathon swimming is super dangerous.

The hard part is doing it well.
