Olympic gold medalist and swimming hotness Cullen Jones has earned a spot on the 2012 USA Swimming Olympic in London. Jones heads to his second straight Olympics after winning silver on Friday in the men’s 100-meter freestyle Olympic swimming trials. Jones time was 48.46s.
At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Jones swam into history as the United States' second black gold medalist in swimming. Anthony Ervin was the first, winning the 50m freestyle at Athens 2000. Jones won his medal in the 4x100 relay team, which set a world record and edged France by virtue of Jason Lezak’s dramatic win in the last leg. Lezak will also be returning to the 2012 Olympics.
Bravo. One more photo AFTER THE JUMP ...
Since the Beijing Olympics, Jones broke the American 50-meter freestyle record in 2009. Jones also made the final spot at the 2011 World championships in Shanghai. Jones was ranked first in the world in the 50M in 2007.
