Twitter went into overdrive on Sunday following Tatjana Schoenmaker's epic Olympic record in a 100m breaststroke heat in Tokyo.
Swimming out of lane 5, the 24-year-old finished her heat in a time of 1:04.82 - beating American Lilly King's record from Rio 2016 - and qualified fastest for the semi-final, which takes place at 02:50 (SA time) on Monday morning.
Here's some of the best reactions on Twitter:

What a statement swim for Tatjana Schoenmaker in the 100 breast. 1:04.82 is just off King's best time this year. We thought of Schoenmaker as a gold medal contender in the 200 breast, but the 100? No way.— David Rieder (@David_Rieder) July 25, 2021
Boom!! New Olympic 100m breaststroke record for Tatjana Schoenmaker ????— kevin (@funrunner1) July 25, 2021
