22-year-old Jimmy Feigen, born September 26, 1989, in Hilo, Hawaii is set to represent Team USA at the London Olympics.

Feigen was a 2008 graduate from Winston Churchill High School in San Antonio, Texas. As a member of the Churchill Chargers, under coach Al Marks, Feigen set High School National records in the 100 (43. 05) and 50 free (19.49).

These accomplishments earned him Swimming World Magazine's 2008 High School Male Swimmer of the Year.

"As far as scholastic sprinting goes, the argument might start and stop with one name: Jimmy Feigen," article writer John Lohn comments.

Coming from a stellar High School career, Feigen went on to attend the University of Texas at Austin under coach Eddie Reese from 2008 to 2012.

In his collegiate career, Feigen was a 24 time All-American and three-time 2012 NCAA Champion in the 50, 100 and 4x100 freestyle relay. At the 2011 World University Games, he won two gold medals in 100 freestyle and 4x100 freestyle relay.

In Omaha, Feigen placed fifth at trials in the 100 freestyle (48.84), seven-tenths behind Nathan Adrian's winning time of 48.10. This place earned him a ticket to London on the men's 400 freestyle relay, marking Feigen's first Olympic appearance.

This is no small feat, considering six of the eight swimmers in the final heat of the 100 were already Olympic gold medalists. Going in to the finals, Feigen was ceded second behind Nathan Adrian.

"That's my best, I can't complain. It went exactly as I thought it was going to go... extremely painful from the get-go," Feigen told Swimming World. "Let's see if I can hold that spot going into tomorrow night, or move up one.

Even though Feigen didn't snag an Olympic Trials victory, he did make the team.

When asked to express his emotions about heading to London, a jubilant, but apparently exhausted Feigen told Swimming World:

"Elation. I can't even fathom it right now, all I can feel is the pain in my legs." Then, switching into technical mode, added, "I probably should have taken a couple more breaths, but we have London to fix that."

Due to NBC rights holder restrictions, the following video interview is only viewable until 7/27/2012:


Thanks to Social media, we have word that Feigen will be rooming with Ricky Berens in Knoxville for Team USA's training camp.

This information comes from Ricky Berens (@RickyBerens) Tweeting "Got to Knoxville safe and sound. Looks like my roommate for the next couple of weeks is going to be my Texas teammate @JimmyFeigen"
