Italy’s Gabriele Detti took down the meet record in the men’s 400-meter free at the 2016 European Championships.

Detti hit the wall in a time of 3:44.01, breaking the 3:45.10 set by Yury Prilukov back in 2008 at the Eindhoven edition of the meet.

Detti has been faster this year, however, with a third-ranked time of 3:43.97.

James Guy, who is the top-ranked swimmer here with a second-ranked 3:43.84 from British Nationals, missed out on finals during prelims as he’s focused on the Olympics this year.

Norway’s Henrik Christiansen took second overall in a time of 3:46.49 with Peter Bernek earning third overall with a 3:46.81 to claim the final medal.  Austria’s Felix Auboeck just missed the podium with a fourth-place 3:46.88.
