MADISON (WKOW) -- As a junior, Wisconsin's Ivy Martin is already one of the best female swimmers the Badgers have ever had. In 2013, Martin broke the Big Ten record in the 50-yard freestyle (21.84) and at the 2014 Big Ten Championships in Minneapolis, Martin broke the record in the 100-free (47.78).
"She does some things that are unlike anybody I've ever seen, and I've been around Olympians and American record holders," Wisconsin head coach Whitney Hite said. "She's got some talent that can't really be taught. "
After she graduates from the University of Wisconsin, Martin hopes to have the opportunity to qualify for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
