Congrats to my fellow NCSU Alum, Cullen Jones, for taking the gold this weekend in the 4x100m relay at the Olympics. Cullen has a very interesting story from nearly drowning when he was five years old - to now, at 24, making history by being the first African-American to hold or share a world record (4x100 Freestyle Relay) in swimming. Yesterday he helped break the world record time of 3:08.24 with his teammates Michael Phelps, Jason Lezak, and Garrett Weber-Gale.
NBC, USA, CNBC, and MSNBC have been covering the Olympics if you didn't already know. Also, for those of you who have Direct TV, they are showing nonstop coverage on channels 750-753
