Michael Phelps’ face is comedy gold to Twitter users mocking his viral death stare.
His angry face has become the pinnacle of Twitter memes, and #PhelpsFace began to trend after a camera caught Phelps getting ready to swim the 200m butterfly event at the Olympics Monday night.
While his competitor was dancing in front of him, the U.S. swimmer had an intense game face on. Even South Africa’s swimmer, Chad Le Clos shaking it out couldn’t get the 19-time gold medalist to break his concentration.
Phelps finished in second place and will advance to Tuesday’s finals. Until that action unfolds on TV, enjoy the best of the Twitter reaction to #PhelpsFace.
