2020 TOKYO SUMMER OLYMPIC GAMES

We took to social media on Day 4 of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games to see what the world had to say about swimming.

 

The first event of the night saw a lot of hype as Australian Ariarne Titmus dominated the women’s 200 freestyle, setting a new Olympic record with her time of 1:53. Fans had a lot to say about Titmus beating American Katie Ledecky two times in a row:

 

 

Siobhan Haughey had a huge swim to take the silver medal, Hong Kong’s first in Olympic Swimming. Haughty posted a time of 1:53. to obliterate her personal best and post a new Asian record. Canadian Penny Oleksiak also posted a personal best to take the bronze medal. With her bronze medal, Oleksiak became the most decorated Canadian Summer Olympian in history. 

 

 

 

 

The women’s 1500 freestyle also saw lots of attention as fans praised Erica Sullivan’s silver medal-winning performance in the race, where she nearly ran down Katie Ledecky

 

Michael Phelps provided insight into an athlete’s mental processes on the NBC broadcast following Simone Biles’ withdrawal from the gymnastics team final. His reaction earned a lot of attention across the sport. 

 

 

However, the highlight of the night came with Kristof Milak’s meme-worthy reaction to winning gold in the 100 butterfly.

Just. So. Unimpressed.
