Top Ten USA Olympic Swimmers


The Top TenXW

1Michael Phelps Michael Fred Phelps II is an American competition swimmer and the most decorated Olympian of all time, with a total of 22 medals in three Olympiads.

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.

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

A very good distance freestyler. She gets every single person in the pool cheering for her.

She is amazing!

She wasn't even 18 when she got her first of many world records.

She is one of the youngest swimmers! But she showed me an lesson. It doesn't matter!

Great swimmer. Keeps the ribbon going.

15Rebecca 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!
