Cullen Jones, 4-time Olympic medalist, looks a whole lot leaner than he ever has in the middle of an Olympic quad. With age comes maturity and wisdom, and Jones appears to be on the path to make gains toward Olympic gold sooner than later. With super club SwimMAC Team Elite and Coach David Marsh behind him, expect Jones to be a factor this summer at the Pan Pacific Championship and World Championship Trials.

Long-term goals for Jones? After winning silver in the 50 freestyle at the 2012 London Olympic Games, Jones is aiming for gold at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

Cullen has always been one of my favorite sprinters. Good to see him focused and committed two years out– he’s gonna need it to make top two at trials with Dressel, Adrian, Fiegen, and Ervin in the picture (among others). I think he’s got what it takes for gold in Rio. Hopefully he’s putting equal time into training his 100. It’s gonna be a dogfight for those relay spots no matter who you are.


Cullen is receiving an honorary degree from Amherst College next month!


He does a good interview. Polished. He’s not too old for a great 50 meter swim when it counts.
