Swimming’s TopTenTweets: The Fall Seen ‘Round the World

We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets presented by Arena, where we round up the best of the swimming Twitterverse. It’s been another fun week in swimming with the college season wrapping up. So from as much Dean Farris content as you might want (though truly, will there ever be enough?), to all the emotions of the 2019 Men’s Division I NCAA Championships, scroll to see what made the cut!

Featured Instagram Post of the Week:


Congrats, Ryan! Click here to read up on the partnership.

11 (Bonus!).

We know it’s *Swimming’s* TopTenTweets but…


Sincerely hope they packed a hair dryer just for this tweet.


We love a tweet that runs multiple memes deep.


A good thing to realize at your final NCAAs.


Focusing on the important things.


Andrew Wilson is six feet tall, for reference.


We can really see this catching on.


Many levels of SwimSwam comment culture at work here.


Alllll the feels :’)


Sums it up.


From Durden’s pure excitement to the four guys immediately jumping to pick him up (and of course Carr’s very fast swim), we love every single part of this. Our Instagram post of the same video is our most-liked in at least the last year.

Always been a huge Matt Grevers fan. Seeing #6 just solidifies that further. Absolute unit.

Eagleswim glad to hear it’s working! We know of a few dictatorial governments that are willing to pay big money for this technology, just had to work out a few kinks.

Which is your favorite NCAA post-race victory interview comment?
A) Lilly King in 2017: “I won because I work harder than everyone else.”
B) Felix Auboeck in 2019: “I would’ve sold my b___s for a victory in that event.”
To be sure, both are quite memorable!

Is there a video of Felix’s interview anywhere? I saw his post-1650 interview but didn’t hear the quote in that one.

As a commenter the one by Not Dean Farris is just amazing.
