While competing on day 2 of the final stop of this year’s World Cup Series, Chinese teen Li Zhuhao fired off a new World Junior Record in the 100m butterfly. En route to claiming silver at the OCBC Aquatic Centre in Singapore behind South African Chad Le Clos, Li finished in a time of 49.53, undercutting the FINA benchmark standard of 50.53 established at the onset of World Junior Records.
We’re back with swimming’s TopTenTweets, where we bring you the week’s best from the swimming Twitterverse. From a #TBT for the ages to a pair of historic World Cup performances, scroll to see what made the cut! For the millionth time, swimming is objectively at least four times more exciting than football. There’s really nothing quite like your swim friends. Technically this is from last week, but is just too #real to pass up.
Both veterans and fresh talent within our sport took to the Singapore stage on day 1 of the last FINA World Cup stop of the series. Entering the meet, South African Chad Le Clos and Swede Sarah Sjostrom lead the overall money lists with totals of $138,850 and $167,500, respectively. Both Olympians look primed to capture the $50,000 cluster bonuses, as well as the $150,000 series title.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
