Iowa freshman swimmer Roman Trussov earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors, the conference announced on Tuesday.

Hawkeyes lost their dual-meet against Minnesota last weekend, in which Trussov took two individual victories of the Hawkeyes’ six overall. Trussov touched the wall first in the 100 breaststroke at 55.08, an NCAA “B” qualifying mark, and the 200 breast at 2:00.06.

The freshman also finished second in the 200 medley relay — teaming with Grant Betulius, Mitch Taylor, and Brian Donatelli — and came in fifth in the 200 individual medley against the Golden Gophers.

The native of Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kazakhstan, also took the same two first-place finishes against Michigan State on Oct. 19. During the Black & Gold intrasquad meet, Trussov posted the sixth-fastest time in Iowa history in the 100 breaststroke at 55.04.

This week’s honor mark the first award of his career and Iowa’s first recognition of the season.
