Watch Dylan Bosch Make Big Ten History

Michigan’s Dylan Bosch won his fourth consecutive Big Ten title in the 200 fly, becoming the first man to four-peat that event in conference history. Watch the senior make history in one of the sport’s most grueling races, yet somehow making it look easy in the process. Congratulations, Mr. Bosch.

As originally reported by Jared Anderson:

200 FLY – FINALS

  1. Dylan Bosch, MICH – 1:40.86
  2. Evan White, MICH – 1:42.36
  3. Vinicius Lanza, IU – 1:42.38

Michigan’s Dylan Bosch won his fourth consecutive Big Ten title in the 200 fly, becoming the first man to four-peat that event in conference history.

That’s an incredibly impressive stat, given some of the big names to win three consecutive Big Ten 200 fly titles over the years: Tom Malchow (1997-1999), Davis Tarwater (2004-2006) and Dan Madwed (2010-2012). Bosch joins Michael Troy (1960-1962) and Mark Spitz (1970-1972) in sweeping the Big Ten title every year he was eligible – those two won three titles apiece in the days before the NCAA allowed freshmen to be eligible to compete on their varsity squads.

Bosch’s run also give Michigan seven straight Big Ten titles in the event, with Madwed’s three coming before Bosch’s run.

Michigan’s Evan White made it a 1-2 punch for the Wolverines who are pretty well into their victory lap as a team at this point. White was 1:42.36, just touching out Indiana freshman Vinicius Lanza (1:42.38) for silver.

Ohio State’s Chim Ling topped Indiana’s Max Irwin for fourth, 1:43.55 to 1:43.71, as those two teams continue to jockey for second overall. IU has pulled ahead by 74.5 points with just two events to go, but the double-point 400 free relay means the spot isn’t technically wrapped up yet.

Meanwhile Wisconsin leads Minnesota by 1.5 points for fourth, with Purdue about 128 back in sixth.

Waiting for Rio… You know, a victory cannot be more impressive than the guys you defeat. When Mike Troy and Spitz won four times, the runner-ups could be the second best in the world. Now, Dylan Bosch is very good but does not belong to such a league…

He did his best with the hand he was dealt. You probably complain when your favorite sports team’s superstar is injured before the playoffs, by saying that had he been able to play your favorite team would have won.

coulda shoulda woulda – can’t predict a thing.

Still, not too shabby.

And just as a counterpoint, there weren’t nearly the number of world class swimmers — and international swimmers — swimming for U.S. colleges back in the day.

Two things we can celebrate: four great years of swimming, and earning a college degree. The latter is something that doesn’t happen all that often in NCAA Division 1 athletics.

Yeah, Dylan Bosch is just the NCAA Record Holder in the event, and has swum the fastest time ever in an actual “race”. Yeah, he doesn’t belong in the upper echelons….

second fastest time ever… he does have the ncaa record though your right about that

Spitz was 2:00.70 in 200M fly. Dylan is obviously much faster. Not even close
