Ben Woldman Tobriner in the 50m free.

The world champ wins at US Nationals defeating Cullen Jones by just 2-hundreds-of-a-second in a time of 21.80. Swim news: "...0.08 seconds inside his world-title effort and 0.04 second shy of the US record held by Gary Hall Jnr, equals the fourth-fastest time ever alongside Anthony Ervin, and takes him to second on the 2007 world rankings. ..." Second only to Alain Bernard of France who swam a 21.76. Swim News: [Link]

This is what the Stanford Magazine caption to the photo on the right says about Wildman-Tobriner:
Junior Ben Wildman-Tobriner, studying premed, holds school records in two events and is pointing toward the 2008 Olympics. [Link]
