Who is Cullen Jones?

By on January 13, 2011

Cullen Jones is a history maker. He is a Bronx, NY native who is the second African-American to hold or share a world record. Anthony Ervin, and Maritza Correia preceding him, Cullen is  the third African-American to make the US Olympic swimming team. In the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, he broke the American record in the 50 meter freestyle with a time of 21.59. During these games, Cullen won a team gold medal in the 4×100 m freestyle relay in a world record time of 3:08.24.

These days, the swimming dynamo continues to rack up notoriety for his work outside of the pool. Concerned that a majority of minority youth do not know how to swim, he’s a proponent of children learning how to swim. Jones himself got his swimming start after a near-drowning incident in which he had to be rescued.
