Gabriele Detti jumped to third in the world in the men’s 400-meter free at the 2016 Italian Nationals.

Detti clocked a winning time of 3:43.97, behind only Mack Horton (3:41.65) and James Guy (3:43.84) this year.  That swim easily cleared the FINA A cut of 3:50.40 in the process.

Mitch D’Arrigo, meanwhile, finished second in 3:50.82 just outside of the FINA A cut.

Domenico Acerenza (3:51.20), Damiano Lestingi (3:51.62), Alex Di Giorgio (3:52.07), Nicolangelo Di Fabio (3:52.56), Samuel Pizzetti (2:54.03) and Matteo Ciampi (3:54.23) also performed in the finale.

    Mitch better go 3:40-plus @ London next month if he wants a seat on the plane to Rio!

    Notice Luav Dotto’s Italuan 109 fre recird ( 47.96) leading off his club’s 400 free relay?.

    Not too shabby. And how comevPaltrinieri didn’t swim the 400 today? Resting on his mile laurels?
