With so many stars on the U.S. swimming team, it's easy to overlook Scott Weltz of Davis.
Weltz, a 2010 UC Davis graduate, gets his shot in the spotlight today in the men's 200-meter breaststroke final at 11:30 a.m. PDT
Weltz, 25, finished third in his heat Tuesday in 2:09.67, then was third in his semifinal in 2:08.99. Overall, he had the fourth best time in the two semifinals.
