A native Canadian, Bryce Kwiecien-Delaney is a freestyle specialist at the University of Michigan. After graduating from Westmount Secondary in Hamilton, Toronto, Kwiecien-Delaney chose to swim for Mike Bottom at Michigan. He’s currently a freshman, and is studying in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts. Born Nov. 1, 1996 Kwiecien-Delaney has been very involved in Canadian swimming – he’s been in the Canadian National Team Development Program and competed at multiple international meets. He is a Canadian National Champion, and although he is a freestyle swimmer, he is a sprint freestyler and swims butterfly too. While in Canada he swam for the Oakville Aquatic Club, and although he had never swam yards, Kwiecien-Delaney had great times in both SCM and LCM coming into Michigan. In the same recruiting class, Kwiecien-Delaney joined another Michigan teammate, Evan White – the duo actually set National Age Group records as relay teammates.
Kwiecien-Delaney is currently in his freshman season as a Michigan Wolverine. He did not compete at the Big Ten Championships, but he made his collegiate debut against Indiana, Texas and Louisville. He competed at the AT&T Winter Nationals, swimming in three events.
In 2013 Kwiecien-Delaney was the Canadian champion in the 100m freestyle, which set him up to compete at the 2013 FINA World Junior Championships. He swam at the 2012 Canadian Olympic Trials, and set 10 National Age Group records between 2012 and 2013, and won six Canadian Age Group national championships between 2010 and 2011.
Kwiecien-Delaney was apart of the Canadian National Team Development Program, and competed at numerous international competitions including the 2013 Australian Youth Olympic Festival and North American Challenge Cup in 2009 and 2011.
