40587472Cullen Jones ’06 got off to a slow start this weekend in the 2011 FINA World Championships in Shanghai, China, failing to advance out of the preliminaries in the 50 butterfly.

But he got some attention on Sunday in The New York Times Magazine, which had a two-page spread on Jones. The story recounts Jones’ journey from a five-year-old who nearly drowned because he couldn’t swim to an Olympic champion who works with minority children to help them get comfortable in the pool.

Jones is still scheduled to compete in the 50 free in Shanghai.
