Black Male Swimmers. Cullen Jones may be the most famous black male swimmer but there are other black male swimmers out there so we decided to update this post to give you a list of ten black guys who saw action in college and international swimming competitions. Let’s begin with:
1. Abdourahman Osman is a freestyle specialist from Djibouti who competed in the 2012 London Olympics.
2. Anthony Ervin is the first swimmer of African-American descent (his dad is Native American and African American) to medal in the Olympics. He earned a gold medal in the men’s 50-meter freestyle and a silver medal as a member of the 4×100 freestyle U.S. relay team.
3. Brett and Shaune Fraser. These hunky swimming brothers have been representing their native Cayman Islands in the Olympics and other international competitions.
4. Dax Hill. If we are looking for a black male swimmer who will follow in the footsteps of Cullen Jones, our best bet would be NCAA champion Dax Hill.
5. Jackson Niyomugabo represented Rwanda in the London 2012 Olympics.
6. Adama Ouedraogo competed in the London 2012 50-meter freestyle event for Burkina Faso.
7. Rony Bakale (also known as Emile Bakale) was the flagbearer for Congo at the 2004 and 2008 Olympic Games.
8. Christian Nassif represented the Central African Republic in London 2012 as well as the 2013 World Aquatics Championships.
