Cullen Jones sets new American record in 50 meters

Cullen Jones set a new American record in the 50 meter freestyle at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials currently being held.

“I’ll take an American record,” Jones said, smiling. “I definitely put my head down when I was going into the wall, but I think there’s a lot more in the tank.”

Ben Wildman-Tobriner and Gary Hall swam the race in under 22 seconds.

“Everybody anticipated that record was going down,” Hall said. “There’s just been too much fast swimming in the world. Records don’t last, especially these days.”
