Featured Instagram Post of the Week:
TFW when you drop a U.S. open record a year after missing the summer’s major international teams.
Hey! @NBCSports – I hope you continue what @olympicchannel is doing with its swimming coverage lately and show the ENTIRE 1500m Frees during Tokyo. I mean, come on, are you seriously going to go to commercial while @katieledecky is swimming? Bet you @RowdyGaines agrees.

Had a long turn on the 100 Fly, put me 5th, 0.02 behind 4th. That turn cost me $100. Details are important people. #LiveandLearn But boy was that fun!

Stars: They’re Just Like Us.
3 years ago you were sitting in the stands watching me make the Olympic Team, only dreaming of one day racing at Trials. Can’t wait to watch you swim at the craziest meet in the world! Proud of you bud. #hemadeit #Omaha2020 #KingSiblings2020 pic.twitter.com/98D5AohN4E

Ryan Lochte being back means this kind of stuff is back and we’re big fans.
What a career! Thanks for all you’ve done, Dana.
