Motion to make this a real event?
We ain’t super human. Just regular people who take the time and effort to learn how to do extraordinary things https://t.co/cjLMlSKTQE

Ok yeah, superhuman isn’t quite the right word; but you know that’s a BRICK in Antonio Brown’s hands, right??
I take a 14 hour plane ride sabbatical from the swimming world and WHAT!!! A man has broken 57 in the 100 BR, Horton has practically started a war with China, the US Men forgot how to swim the 200 FR AND Ledecky/Sjostrom were beaten? God I love this sport 🏊 @swimswamnews

Life comes at you FAST.
@swimiller , these guys LOVE your vlogs and love watching you swim!! Most of all, your vlog has inspired them to focus on the right things and they love watching you do what you do. You’re an inspiration for so many up and coming younger swimmers and we’re grateful for you! pic.twitter.com/ZnDnElOWpU

As we always say, swimming on TV is an instant TTT.
Just when I thought I found a place to complain. Unbelievable pic.twitter.com/prhj6fWiL4

How dare they.
25k Swim = about 15.5 miles
Distance between bases = 90ft
1 home run = 360ft ‘run’
About 14 home runs = 1mile
Therefore it would take roughly 227 home runs of “running” to equal the same distance as this single swimming event.
Swimming isn’t A sport sir, it’s THE sport. https://t.co/9EGiucIjKh

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.
