Swimming World Radio Speaks With Swimming World Magazine’s Male College Swimmer of the Week Mike Alexandrov

PHOENIX, Arizona, February 1. NORTHWESTERN University senior Mike Alexandrov led the Wildcats to wins over Michigan, 189.5-144.5, and Ohio State, 185.5-148.5. That effort earned the 2004 Olympian Swimming World Magazine's Male College Swimmer of the Week accolades. The 2005 World University Games competitor, while also garnered Collegeswimming.com's Division I National Collegiate Male Swimmer of the Week honors, spoke with Swimming World Radio.

With the two Big Ten wins, Northwestern completed the season with an unblemished 8-0 mark. Five of those triumphs came over ranked opponents. Northwestern opened the dual with a pool record and NCAA B cut to win the 400 medley relay (3:12.03), with Alexandrov swimming the breaststroke leg. Alexandrov followed that up with a pool record and NCAA B cut to win the 200 breaststroke (1:57.45). He led off the second day of competition with a win as a part of victorious 200 medley relay that achieved an NCAA B cut (1:27.86). Alexandrov then blazed to a more than 2.5 second win in the 100 breaststroke (53.14), swimming an A cut to establish yet another pool record for NU.
