Gold Medalist Cullen Jones Teaches Black Kids To Swim
When he first started swimming, Cullen Jones' dad was disappointed because he wanted his son to play basketball. Jones won an Olympic gold medal as part of the US' 4-man relay along with Michael Phelps. He now works to teach kids how to swim through the USA Swimming Foundation's Make a Splash initiative. What a great American!
