We’ll never not be #inspired by Eric the Eel.


This world needs more swim team hype videos.


Greg Meehan is quickly becoming one of the GOAT coaches, this Vine included. #RIPvine, indeed.


Marsh is putting his new environment to work; his swimmers are surely “thrilled.”


Regardless of who does or doesn’t show up to watch them swim, you can bet that swimmers will be out there supporting other teams, usually in notable fashion.


We’ll say it again: there’s a reason Dana has 7 gold medals and we don’t.


Jason Dufner made headlines after splitting his pants on-air this week, but Ricky Berens had every swimmer’s worst suit nightmare come true. Click here if you need a refresher. 


Ah, the life of a sprinter.


You do you, USC.


Cullen Jones has still got it. We repeat: CULLEN. JONES. HAS. STILL. GOT. IT.

1:01.9 SCY would still be insane for anyone I’ve ever met. But the pros are just on another level kicking, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that was LCM.


I don’t know about insane, I swam on mid-level club team of about 13-15 high schoolers and we had about four guys who could all go 1:02 or faster SCY.

Schooling went 1:01.8

Caeleb Dressel WILL get 7 golds in Tokyo

About 13 years ago or so?

Steve Nolan

I think so! Which when you lay it all out is crazy – he was already 19 or 20 in 2000 when he went that 1:50, basically cut that in half.
