Iowa wrestling coaches face off in freestyle swimming competition.

Tom and Terry Brands are twin brothers, Olympians and Iowa wrestling coaches. They went one on one against each other in a 50 meter freestyle swimming race before the Iowa St-Iowa womens swim meet back on Dec. 12. Hawkeye head wrestling coach and Olympic gold medalist came out ahead of his brother, associate head coach and Olympic bronze medalist Terry Brands.

Luckily for America, the Brands brothers decided to go with the more modern, long-legged compression shorts-like trunks as opposed to the more infamous Speedo briefs swimsuit.

Michael Phelps or Ryan Lochte they aren't. But brother Tom's win garnered $250 for the charity of his choice from Iowa Corn.
