The Top Ten

Michael Phelps
He's an amazing swimmer and everyone should know that. I know he was caught with a bong but whatever I respect him anyway.

He is definetely the best of the best. Go Phelps!
Michael phelps is truly the best swimmer in the world. He is such an inspiration to me and to millions of others. I'm a Phelper! Laugh out loud I just made that up. He is so awesome, not to mention hot! *wink*
I think he is an amazing swimmer because he spends all his time swimming. I am a swimmer and I really want to grow up and be exactly like him and how he swims.

The Contenders

11Missy Franklin
Great personality, an excellent person to represent the United States, excellent attitude towards her sport and of life.
Missy Franklin should be up in the top 10. She made it in swimming at age 16 and has only gotten better. My hero and role model
She got 4 gold and one bronze in her first olympics! Come on people!
Two world records! How much did phelps get in Sydney? A big donut hole.
Give her at least number 9

12Ryan Lochte
I love Ryan Lochte because he is 28 years old and he is execellent.

13Brendan Hanson
He is amazing at breast stroke.
A great backstroker and frestyler


14Rebecca Soni
She is a great swimmer. She has competed in 2 Olympic Games and she won the medals in both of them. Rebecca is the best breaststroker in the United States, she is not as good as Michael phelps but she deserves to be on the top ten list.
Rebecca Soni is THE BEST BREASTROKER ON THE US TEAM! She swam the 200 breastroke in the semi finals of the olympic and when she came back for to swim it agian she beat her own time! She broke her own world record too! (her time was a 2:19:59) she needs to be higher on this list at least on the top ten!

15Natalie Coughlin
Very good at everything and most decorated female swimmer!
My swim team coach is married to her. And I love her!
