LONDON – Sunday was Jimmy Feigan’s big day, the former Churchill Charger is bringing a silver medal back home to San Antonio.
The former Texas Longhorn started off by swimming the first leg on the 4x100 meter relay in qualifying. Feigan and company finished second to Australia, and advanced to the finals.
Later, the U.S. coaches went with four completely different swimmers in the final (Nathan Adrian, Michael Phelps, Cullen Jones and Ryan Lochte). The U.S. led most of the race, but France swam down Lockte on the final leg to claim the Gold medal.
The Americans finish second and got the silver. So, Feigen and all of the swimmers who qualified earlier also get a medal. It’s the 22-year-old first Olympic medal.
