Head to Head Dual Jones Vs Schneider

Some things just need to be settled by a Dual! That’s what will happen this afternoon at 6:20pm during the Charlotte UltraSwim between Cullen Jones and Josh Schneider for a spot on the World Championship Team.

Karen Crouse from the The New York Times followed this great story as it developed and just yesterday published it.

“Jones and Schneider were talking trash to each other at practice. “But they weren’t joking,” said another teammate, Nick Brunelli. “They meant it.”  [Link] Great Article!

I have personally seen these two jockeying for position the last 10 weeks. Both swimmers looking at each other wondering what the other is thinking or doing. I can’t wait for this swim-off to happen. The one and only reason why is for all of us on Team Elite to get back to training for something bigger then just the two of them, The Olympic Games!

Cullen and Josh, Good Luck and I wish the best for both of you but DON’T tie again for all your team mates sake!

  1. Man, it was all in the start!

    • Wow that was fun to watch! And yes it was all in the start! Josh got stuck under his breakout. Lost all his speed and had to create it all by the 25 mark. He out swam Cullen though. He has to be looking forward to swimming it again!

  2. Wow,, That is awesome!!
