    First, we had Ronny in spandex, now Roy in a speedo. Is Daily Show a secret thirst trap? 😘

    I completely forgot about Eric the Eel! I do remember crying & yelling at the tv to urge him on. What an excellent moment in Olympic history. Gotta share this with my old swim team. #Nufinmen

    I understood what he was saying with his accent come on now. I guess white people don’t understand. Subtitles for them I suppose.

    “musambani” pronounced similar to Moussambani, in Zambia and Malawi means swimmer or bath(er). Samba means swim/bath

    I understand your accent only because my professor in college had the same accent.

    “He set a new personal best and an Equatoguinean national record. He later became the coach of the national swimming squad of Equatorial Guinea.”
    I call that winning

    I remember watching this on the news recap at the time. So sad many people only came to know about this epic moment just now but it’s better than nothing.
