Ohio State's men’s swim and dive team finished second at the Big Ten Championships in Ann Arbor and one of the brightest moments came Saturday as Ruslan Gaziev won the 100-yard freestyle gold medal with a time of 41.38. 

Gaziev's blistering pace set a program record, meet record and pool record. 

Gaziev is a graduate student who hails from Toronto and he was a 2020 Tokyo Olympian. 

Gaziev was one of two Buckeyes to win individual gold medals during the final day of the championships along with Charlie Clark, who celebrated his victory in the 1,650-yard freestyle by wearing a TreVeyon Henderson jersey.

The Buckeyes’ 200 medley relay team of Alex Quach, Pete Krusinski, James Ward and Gaziev also won gold during the first night of the championships with a Canham Natatorium record time of 1:23.03.
