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?
Chance of him going back to the 400 for the long course 2013 season then? Everyone wants to see Agnel vs Sun now!ReplyDelete
wow. Just wow. Biedermann's swim also crushed Grant Hackett's former WR that Biedermann destroyed.ReplyDelete
There's no doubt Agnel could be a 3:40 swimmer if not faster if he keeps at it.
