8. TYR Pro Series Data Dump
Another week, another data dump here on TopTenTweets
This one is for all you swim-data fans out there 😎

7. Team Goggles
We love this reel from the Swimming Canada Worlds’ contingent.
6. Most Meters in Fukuoka
We added up who swam the most in the pool, but Kristof Rasovszky was on a different level.
For a faster recovery, Kristoff used a rubber band on on his arms and legs to help blood circulation. Watch out the video! pic.twitter.com/omkiOYrjHe

And while we’re at it, Katie Ledecky should be on there too.

4. Happy Crystal Anniversary
The best angle of the iconic relay, 15 years later.
It’s been 15 years since this moment that will live on forever in Olympic history:
The greatest relay of all time. 🥇 pic.twitter.com/nYhFMdiVqn

3. Off To College
2. Destiny Arrives
I wouldn’t go so far as to call the new conference realignments “perfectly balanced,” though.

1. Swimming Laps
This gets the #1 spot because it’s the most relaxing thing I’ve seen all week.
Come si rilassa alla fine della stagione il nostro argento olimpico di nuoto a #Tokyo2020 e campione mondiale a #Budapest2022, Lorenzo Zazzeri. 🎶🏊🏻💙#ItaliaTeam @FINOfficial_ #swimming pic.twitter.com/hLfEneFlQu
