Top 10 Instagram Posts from Team USA in Croatia

Check out what Team USA has been positing on social media at their taper camp in Opatija, Croatia. They have been sleeping, eating, swimming, and posting to Instagram on the coast of the Adriatic sea all week.  The team is staging in Croatia July 12-19 before they fly to Budapest where World Championships take place July 23-30th.

You can find the 2017 U.S. World Championship team’s Twitter and Instagram links HERE.

Here is a compilation of the top 10 posts from the team in Croatia so far this week:

10. Rookies Regan Smith and Dakota Luther Posing poolside after a practice.  “New places new faces”, good thing they didn’t drive there because this is what Regan, 15,  is doing this summer after having to reschedule her drivers test.
