Ian Makowske is entering his third season as program assistant with the Michigan men's gymnastics program after an outstanding four-year career on the team (2008-11). A four-time varsity letterwinner, and two-time NCAA All-American on high bar, Makowske claimed runner-up on the apparatus at the 2010 and 2011 NCAA Championships. In 2011 he also claimed the Big Ten high bar title and was tabbed All-Big Ten Conference First Team. Additionally, he was part of the 2010 NCAA Championship squad, playing an instrumental role in the fourth NCAA Team Championship in school history.

Makowske also excelled in the classroom at U-M, earning CoSIDA Academic All-American District IV second team honors in 2010. He collected the Michigan Athletic Academic Achievement award and CGA Scholastic All-American distinction all four years in Ann Arbor, and was an Academic All-Big Ten Selection and Big Ten Conference Distinguished Scholar as a sophomore, junior and senior. Makowske graduated with honors from the College of Literature, Sciences, & Arts in 2011 with an undergraduate degree in English. He begins his Master of Science degree at the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and the Environment with a focus in Behavior, Education, and Communication in fall of 2013.

His responsibilities as program assistant lie in assisting the coaching staff in all aspects of the program, and day-to-day operations.

Makowske continues to train and compete as a sponsored elite athlete for the Connecticut-based non-profit foundation Mikey's Way, which provides pediatric cancer patients with electronic games to help them cope with the fear, boredom, and isolation of treatment. Recently granted dual citizenship with Ireland, Makowske looks to step onto the international stage in spring of 2014.

Makowske's parents, Gabrielle and John, both attended the University of Michigan, and his grandfather and uncle were members of the U-M baseball team. His sister Hannah is a sophomore at University of Michigan studying Public Policy.
