TopTenTweets: It’s Officially Olympic Trials Season

Hello everyone and welcome back in for another round of TopTenTweets. With Australian Olympic Trials in full swing, U.S. Olympic Trials starting tomorrow, and the French Championships kicking off next week, we are officially in one of the busiest Olympic Trials seasons.
