Georgia senior Chase Kalisz of Bel Air broke his three-year-old US Open and NCAA record in the 400 individual medley on Friday at the NCAA championships in Indianapolis.

Kalisz swam the distance in 3 minutes, 33.32 seconds, topping his previous best of 3:34.50, set at the 2014 NCAA championships.

Kalisz took the NCAA season off last year to train for the Olympics; he won the title in 2013 and 2014.
