One thing that always stuck in my mind, that's always true for big events. You can never count anyone out. Including yourself. Anything can happen. Who is excited for the @Olympics ! I can't wait to see who will step up!— Julia Mancuso (@JuliaMancuso) January 28, 2018

He qualified for his fifth Olympics, and while his Twitter account may not be as informative as others, it will certainly provide some entertainment.
Don't know why it is so important to NBC to shout "FOURTH" but they can argue, lie and shout all they want and it still doesn't make them right. I, Shani Davis, am going to my Fifth Olympics and I do not need to shout it because #TruthHasAVoice https://t.co/CyBlq7v9Rd— Shani Davis (@ShaniDavis) January 12, 2018
