Phelps Face

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Apparently #PhelpsFace is a thing, aka the official Olympic meme of #Rio2016.

As all of us swimmers here at #SHWHK are HUGE Phelps fans, how could we not create a list of #PhelpsFace worthy moments that every swimmer has faced at some point in their life... or if you haven't just take notes, because these things will happen to you!

*Small side bar: Please share your own swimming related #PhelpsFace moments with us via Twitter or in the comment field of this post so we can add them to our list. We would love to hear them!

Now without further ado, here is our list:

#PhelpsFace Moments That Anyone Who Is A Swimmer Will Understand!

When it's 40° and the pools aren't open late!
When it's winter and everything is frozen!
When you are about to dive in and see nothing... but WEEDS!
When you do dive in and find nothing... but WEEDS!
When you get out of the pool and realize you left your undies at home!
When you forget you motha’ flippin' bathing suit at home!
When you realize your bathing suit is just too see-through to pass (and has probably been too see-through for the last several swims.) 
When the sign says “Pool Is Closed” but the website said open!
When there has been a fouling 💩!
When someone mentions the presence of a dock spider!
When someone is swimming horizontally across all lanes during length swim. (I mean seriously, that is CRAZY!)
When someone is peepin' you under the water!
When you see fast swimmers in the slow lane, and slow swimmers in the fast lane!
When you are promised swimming and there is no swimming!
And for the finale, I gave my own #PhelpsFace a try to accompany:
My attitude towards all WEEDS in general!
