Swimming at the French Elite Nationals with his French club team, Olympic Nice Natation, Switzerland’s Jeremy Desplanches destroyed his own Swiss national record in the 400m IM by 2.45 seconds, winning the event in Strasbourg by 10.88 seconds with 4:13.11.

Desplanches had established a new Swiss mark in the 400m IM on August 6, 2016, during heats at the Olympic Games in Rio. There he swam a 4:15.46, which was 2.44 seconds faster than his previous best, a 4:17.90 from the 2015 World Championships in Kazan.

Most of his improvement has come over the front half of the race.
