The 2017 French Elite Long Course Nationals continued tonight in Strasbourg with day 4 finals. Swiss IMer Jeremy Desplanches once again made headlines as he landed on top of the podium. After winning the 400 IM title with a new Swiss Record earlier in the meet, he completed his sweep of the IM golds in day 4 finals.
Desplanches obliterated the field, clocking a 1:57.40 to finish 5 seconds ahead of anyone else in the championship heat. He was nearly a full second under his own former Swiss Record, which stood at a 1:58.31 done at a meet in Amiens last month. His splits were faster all around, but the biggest difference came on the fly leg, where he was nearly 4 full tenths faster tonight than he was in Amiens.
