Toulouse swimmer Léon Marchand ideally ended his French swimming championships this Friday by winning the 200m medley. He will therefore be competing in four disciplines this summer during the Paris Olympics.

And 4/4 for Léon Marchand. This Friday evening, the Toulouse swimmer won in 1’56″33 in the 200m medley in the final of the French swimming championships in Chartres. The Dauphins du Toec licensee achieved the Olympic minimums to qualify for participation in four events during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games this summer (400m medley, 200m breaststroke, 200m butterfly).

“It’s not bad. It’s a bit like what I’ve been doing all this week, I want to say. It’s not really the performances I want to do, but it’s the qualifying… I’m happy because it wasn’t my best level this week in terms of form” confided the Toulouse native. “It’s really hard to plunge into a final where the goal is not to win, but to set a time. For me, it’s not easy. But I’m quite happy, I managed well. I didn’t have a lot of energy left this week. We’ll have to get back to work for a week and a half to two weeks and try to recover as much as possible to be ready for the Games,” continued the 22-year-old.

Léon Marchand then announced that he was going to return to Toulouse in the coming days, where he will find his parents and be able to enjoy his family. He will then go to Vichy with the French team to prepare for the Games. “I’m quite satisfied. I wanted to swim a little faster, to place world-wide in my specialty races… I’m not far from that, so it’s okay. It went rather well” he then summed up.
