Remember this tweet if Arizona is hit by a string of mysterious shoulder injuries.
This moment literally gave me goosebumps….
Canada’s @taylor_ruck wins gold in the 200m free.
Ruck dominated from start to finish, holding off Katie Ledecky to swim 1:54.44 which is the fastest ever at a Pan Pacs and a new Commonwealth record. #PanPacs2018 pic.twitter.com/XYfHOcd1yE

Probably the most excited we’ve seen anyone look, ever.
So Japan TV is awesome. We got to watch a big portion of the 2 Free for a second time. They always have a behind the scenes camera running so you can check out the warm Down pool or what not. And they freaking obsess over the stars. 👍👍

When it’s more enjoyable to watch a broadcast in a language you don’t speak than in the one you do…
It was a privilege to be in the stands and watch my World Record be broken. Massive congratulations to
Kliment Kolesnikov 🇷🇺
It was great to congratulate him after the race and pass the batton on 🌍🏆 24.00 #WorldRecord #Swimming #50Backstroke pic.twitter.com/TR2dlsHKwI

Note to self: with or without legs, you can still stand tall.
There was a time I would have never posted a picture showing my prosthetic legs, but to heck with that! These girls have gotten me all around the world and I’m proud of them 🖤 #parapanpacs2018 pic.twitter.com/G5nMVXdGF7

An inspiration to us all.
10 years ago today: The Men’s 4x100m Freestyle Relay Final at the Beijing Olympics. Phelps gets his 2nd of 8 golds. Most exciting race I’ve ever seen.
“The Americans? We're going to smash them. That's what we came here for.”- France’s Alain Bernard
