SwimSwam news is a swimming news organization covering competitive swimming along with diving, water polo and synchronized swimming. SwimSwam launched as a website in March 2012 and quickly became the most-read swimming website in the world. SwimSwam was named one of NBC Sports's 100 must-follow social media handles for the 2016 Summer Olympics.
The news organization was founded by Braden Keith, Garrett McCaffrey, Davis Wuolle, Tiffany Stewart and Olympic gold medalist Melvin Stewart, widely known as Gold Medal Mel.
SwimSwam made international headlines when it published statistical data suggesting the pool used for the 2016 Summer Olympics was affected by currents that unfairly advantaged some lanes over others. The original SwimSwam report was picked up and reported on by The Washington Post, Deadspin, Australia's News.com.au and Inside Science.
