Olympian Cullen Jones Wants More Black Kids to Swim

With the help of the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash campaign, gold medal Olympian swimmer Cullen Jones is spreading awareness about water safety, especially for African-American children who are less likely to know how to swim. He recently talked to Real Health Magazine about the importance of parents overcoming their own fears of water in order to help their kids get in the pool.
