In the summer of 2017, Twichell won the gold medal at the World Championships in Budapest in the Women's 5 km open water competition.
"It is awesome to be here," Twichell said, about the Golden Goggle Awards. "It is really special to be here with the 2018 Pan Pac team, and to celebrate the year that we had."
Each day, Twichell is motivated by the goals that she sets for herself. "Having those goals in the back of my mind really help me get out of the bed into the morning and into the pool," she said.
Twichell defined the word success as "Giving all that she has every single day." "If I do that, I will be really happy with what I accomplish," she said.
