Swimming Memes

College swimmer & Meme lover making the memes of the internet relatable to swimming.

Competed in my last CIS (Canada’s version of NCAA’s) championships last weekend. Bittersweet. I’m going to miss this sport.

Anonymous asked: how do you feel about the standards (sr nats) being quite harder now? do you still have yours?

I LOVE THAT THEY’RE HARDER!!!!!

I do still have mine, and I think the harder standards are making it incentive for Canada to catch up to the rest of the world.

Anonymous asked: really starting to think of unfollowing you, - you haven't posted it what seems like months. :(

Okay, go ahead. I do have swimming and school and a social life and medical school applications and a bazillion other things, sorry my priority isn’t anons on tumblr.

coachoftheyearmovie asked: Hi! I'm contacting you on behalf of the upcoming feature film COACH OF THE YEAR- An independent, kid-friendly sports comedy based on the inspiring true story of a rag tag swim team that tries to win a state championship...without a pool to practice in. Director/swim coach Dave Stott hopes that with this film we will inspire kids all over the country to learn to swim safely. This is a FOR swimmers BY swimmers movie and we'd really appreciate it if you would promote it on your blog. Thanks!

Everyone read this and follow these guys =) 

Thanks for the submission!

To everyone that wonders if they should swim:

I am 20. 4 years ago, at 16, my 50m free time was a 42 seconds. No I’m not kidding. 4 years ago, swimming was just something I did for fun. 

Two years ago, I was lucky enough to start swimming Varsity at a University. That October, I got my first Nationals cut. This season, I got 5 Nationals cuts, and qualified to swim at the Olympic Trials.

Not only did I get to swim at the Olympic Trials, I qualified to the B Final in the 100m freestyle. It was the best experience of my life and I love every second of swimming. The hard practices, the dryland we hate, my team… everything. 

If you had told me 4 years ago that I would be swimming at the Olympic Trials and qualified to the B final in one race, I wouldn’t have thought it was possible. But with a lot of hard work, sacrifice, and dedication, I did what I never thought I could do. 

So just shut up, and swim.
