On the final day of the men’s B1G championships, the IU Hoosiers are looking to seal their 3rd-consecutive B1G title, with the Michigan Wolverines closely behind.
IU continues to look strong as they head into the final day of competition. Along with them, Minnesota’s Bowen Becker and Michigan’s Charlie Swanson look to contend for double wins against the Hoosiers.
Samy swam a double on Friday (though no 200 free relay), and his encore on Saturday will be the 200 back, versus the 100 free.
Today we’ll get to see NCAA record holder Ian Finnerty swim his best event, the 100 breast, where he holds the meet record in 50.72.
After skipping the 50 free (and not swimming the 400 medley relay either) on Thursday, Indiana’s Mohamed Samy will swim 2 individual events on Friday.
Sany ranks 6th in the Big Ten this season in the 50 free and 1st in the 200 IM.
On the heels of the Indiana women’s first B1G title since 2011, it’s time for the men’s conference champs.

Zach Apple won all three of his individual events yesterday.
Siobhan Haughey won all three of her events as the Michigan women handled Indiana, while the Hoosier men defended home turf against the visiting Wolverine men.
In 2018, Chad le Clos cemented his legacy as one of the most dominant butterfly swimmers of all time, and particularly as one of the greatest short course meters swimmers.
