Leon Marchand continued to shine this weekend setting a new NCAA record in the 400 IM Saturday while suited up in Arizona State’s dual meet against defending NCAA Champions Cal. Marchand can be seen in the video above in lane four suited up in blue. He gets out to a quick lead and is clearly the first to touch at the 50 mark.
Marchand broke Hugo Gonzalez‘s record of 3:32.88 which he set at NCAAs last year. Gonzalez can also be seen in this race, right below Marchand in lane three. Gonzalez was not suited up and ended up swimming a time of 3:57.92 to finish fifth.

Marchand swam a total of four of the top times in the NCAA this weekend, including going the top time in the 200 breaststroke twice.
His 400 IM here was his fourth event of the dual meet after already competing in the 200 medley relay, 100 breast, and 200 breast. Notably, it was estimated that there were about 35 minutes between his 200 breast and 400 IM.
The #1, #5, #6, and #11 performances in the event all-time now belong to Marchand. He currently holds the top time in the NCAA by about 3.5 seconds.
