  • Career Highlights: Weltz pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the Olympic trials by winning the 200 meter breaststroke. He beat out breaststroke heavyweights Brendan Hansen and Eric Shanteau to clinch his first Olympic appearance. "My whole body was kind of tingling and I was like, `I'm feeling it and something is different, this is the time,'" said Weltz, who also finished fourth in the 100 breast at the trials. "I was smiling behind the blocks, I wasn't nervous. I felt great going into it." Weltz qualified for the 2008 Olympic trials - racing against Michael Phelps in two events - but his best finish was 30th in the 400 individual medley. He was named 2009 and 2010 Big West Conference Male Athlete of the Year while swimming for UC Davis, preceded by winning the 2006 Big West Freshman of the Year.
