“Day In The Life Of Dylan Bosch” Video Documentary

The above documentary, “Day in the Life of Dylan Bosch,” was produced by Dina Veloric, an art student at The University of Michigan. Here are her thoughts:

“[The video gives] insight into all aspects of the daily life of a swimmer, as it was made over the course of a month. Rather than just seeing the athletes as “performers” the video creates the opportunity for viewers to hear the stories and see an athlete’s life from an insider perspective. The video creates an understanding of the mentality, dedication, relationships, and sacrifices that athletes make to reach their goals, and what comes with competing at such an intense level, as most viewers are unfamiliar with this. Instead, they will find themselves seeing the sports world from the inside rather than just observing.”

Bosch is a South African Olympic hopeful and U.S. National Champion. He is currently in his senior year of competition at the University of Michigan, where he has grown into an NCAA national champion (2014, 200 fly), a seven-time Big 10 champion, the 2015 Big 10 Swimmer of the Year, and an 11-time NCAA All-American, among many other accolades. In 2012, he finished second at South African Olympic Trials in the 100 fly, just missing the Olympic Team. In 2014, he came back to win the 200 fly at South African National Championships.

Funny, all the empty alcohol bottles on the mantle behind him at 0:34. It’s good to see some things never change.


Stunning video. Good luck Dylan.
