For the fifth consecutive year, BTN will televise seven winter Big Ten Championships, including men’s and women’s swimming and diving, wrestling, men’s and women’s indoor track and field and men’s and women’s gymnastics. Every event will be produced in high definition, including live coverage of the entire Big Ten Men’s Gymnastics Championships, the final rounds of the Big Ten Wrestling Championships and the final session of the Big Ten Women’s Gymnastics Championships.

Let’s review: Olympian. NCAA champion. NCAA Diver of the Year. Purdue Male Athlete of the Year. Big Ten Champion. Big Ten Diver of the Year. Big Ten Diver of the Championships. And that’s all just from the 2010-11 season. Oh, he’s also the reigning Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the Year, handed out to the Big Ten’s best male athlete.
