American swimmer Jones ‘never lost hope’ of winning at London GamesWashington: American swimmer Cullen Jones, who won two silver medals in the 4x100-meter freestyle relay and the 50-meter freestyle at London Games, has said he felt a strong sense of personal victory this time around.

“Blood, sweat and tears went into it, and for me to be able to come home -- and to be able to bring hardware home with me! -- is definitely a blessing. I``m very happy with my performance. I definitely never lost hope that I had a shot,”

During his stay in London, the New York City native was impressed by support from his family, friends and fans even if it arrived at odd hours.

“It wasn kind of funny because of the [time] delay. At 2 o``clock in the morning my phone was going off. People are saying, ``Great swim! Great swim!`` and I``m like, ``I am sleeping! It``s the middle of the night,``” he said.

Jones added: “But I``m so thankful for everyone who was behind me and a part of Team Jones.
