Swimming’s TopTenTweets: The Public Recognition Bar is Very High

We’re back with swimming’s top 10 tweets, where we gather the best of the swimming Twitterverse. From an A+ Katie Ledecky impersonator to some good old self-deprecation from Cody Miller, scroll to see what made the cut!


Those are some WIDE eyes.


You tell them, Brooklyn.


She may be from New York, but Lia knows she speaks like a true Californian.


Cody should just read Dr. Seuss for his next vlog. Who says no?

Penny’s reply – #goleafsgo
