​Huntsville, Ala. ---- Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer Cullen Jones will host two free swim clinics in Huntsville in mid-April.  On Thursday, April 18, Jones is scheduled to visit Alabama A&M University, where he will meet students and local dignitaries, sign autographs and pose for photos at A&M's Student Health and Wellness Center.

 

From 4-5 p.m., Jones will lead a clinic at the Wellness Center for advanced swimmers.   He is slated to facilitate a "Community Learn to Swim Clinic" from 6-7 p.m.

 

The Olympian was part of the world record-setting U.S. 4 x 100-meter freestyle relay team at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, along with Michael Phelps, Jason Lezak and Garrett Weber-Gale. At the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Jones earned a gold medal in the men's 4 x 100-meter medley relay and captured silvers in the 50-meter freestyle and 4 x 100-meter freestyle relay.

 

Jones is just the third black athlete to make the U.S. Olympic swimming team. Anthony Ervin joined it first at the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, followed by female swimmer Maritza Correia at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece.

 

According to an online biography, Jones learned to swim after nearly drowning at a Pennsylvania water park at age 5.

 

All activities are free and open to the University community and the public.  Call Daniel Kasambira at (256) 372-7003 to learn more and/or to register for the clinics.
