Cincinnati.com ran news of a victory for University of Cincinnati swimmer Josh Schneider in the 50-meter freestyle Saturday at the Charlotte Ultraswim event. Schneider, who earlier this year won the NCAA championship in the same race, swam the second-fastest time by an American this year in the event and beat out the current American record-holder, Olympic Gold Medalist Cullen Jones. Schneider's time of 22.38 is also No. 17 in the world.

During his time at UC, Schneider was a five-time all-America selection, seven-time BIG EAST Conference Champion and two-time BIG EAST Swimmer of the Year. He set 22 school-record times (including five still undefeated) and was undefeated in the 50 freestyle during 2009-10. Schneider is currently finishing his BBA in marketing at the UC College of Business and training for the 2012 Olympics in London.
