Yannick Agnel showed no signs of a post-Olympic slump today as he blasted out a new world record in the 400m free short course at the French National Championships. The 200m free Olympic champion rocketed to a new mark of 3:32.25, eclipsing Paul Biedermann's suited swim of 3:32.77. Agnel's time beat his former best time by over 7 seconds.
The time equates to two 1:46s back-to-back. This is Agnel's first 400 short course since 2010, with a bit more polish could we see a sub-3:30 swim?
