European junior silver medalist Mark Torok Dominik speaks in Wisconsin

Fitter and Faster Swim Camps is the proud sponsor of the SwimSwam College Recruitment Channel and all engagement news. For many, swimming in college is a long-held dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who have supported them on their journey.

Hungarian Mark Torok Dominik has committed to Wisconsin for fall 2022.

Dominik swims for the Ferencvarosi Torna Club / Hungarian Swimming Federation and has had several travel experiences with the national team. In 2019, he won a silver medal in the 200 butterfly (1: 58.79) at the European Junior Championships. That time is still his personal best, although it came close at this year’s European Championships when he clocked 1: 58.88 to place 23rd in the prelims.

Kristof Milak, who also swims for Hungary and currently holds the world record, won the event in 1: 54.38.

Dominik also competed at the 2019 World Junior Championships in his hometown of Budapest, Hungary. There he placed 7th in the 400 IM and did not advance to the 200 butterfly final, placing 14th out of the prelims. In addition, he has competed in a handful of FINA World Cup events (25m).

Dominik lives in Hungary, so he has no official Short Course Yards (SCY) time. His best moments include:

  • 100 chest (LCM) – 1: 03.19
  • 200 chest (LCM) – 2: 15.95
  • 200 flies (LCM) – 1: 58.79
  • 200 IM (LCM) – 2: 06.51
  • 400 IM (LCM) – 4: 19.30

Since Dominik has no yardage data, we converted his best yardage times to yardage times.

  • Chest 100 yards – 55.12 (converted from LCM)
  • 200 yard chest – 1: 58.97 (converted from LCM)
  • 200 yards fly – 1: 44.49 (converted from LCM)
  • 200 yards IM – 1: 51.09 (converted from LCM)
  • 400 yards IM – 3: 47.83 (converted from LCM)

Based on his projected yardage times, he will arrive at Madison with times that should score at the conference level. Based on last year’s Big Ten Championships, Dominik would have won the A final in 2 events: 7th in the 400 IM and 6th in the A final in the 200 butterfly. Last season, Wisconsin did not have an A finalist in the 200 butterfly.

Notably, with his projected times, Dominik is close to several invitations to last year’s NCAA Championships.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a Division I program that competes with the Big Ten Conference. Wisconsin placed 5th at the 2021 Men’s Big Ten Championships with 729, just 3 points off 4th place (Purdue). Yuri Suguiyama, who has extensive experience working on staff with USA Swimming, is in his 4th season as the program’s head coach.

Dominik will join Charlie Jones, Michael Long, Cooper Scharff, Colin Senke, Lance Swanepoel, Taiko Torpe-Ormsby and Zach Ward as new members of the 2026 class.
