Camille Muffat breaks the 800 free short course world record

Camille Muffat refuses to be outshone by her club team-mate Yannick Agnel. The 400m free Olympic champion just crushed the 800 free short course world record at French Nationals.

She raced to a 8:01.06 taking a full 3 seconds off Alessia Filippi's old mark which stood since 2008.

Muffat's swim was incredible. She split a world class 4:00.85 at the 400 mark, what is even more incredible is that she came back in an even faster 4:00.21. To give those splits some perspective, the 25th fastest time of all-time is 4:00.80.
