Peaty breaks world record

Britain’s Adam Peaty set a world record for the short course 100 meters breaststroke at the professional International Swimming League in Budapest, Hungary, yesterday, finishing in a time of 55.49 seconds. The previous record of 55.61 seconds was set by South African swimmer Cameron van der Burgh in Berlin 11 years ago. “It’s my first short course world record, which I struggle with, but no-one works harder on the last length and that one was for my family,” Peaty told the BBC. The Olympic breaststroke champion also holds world records for the long course 100 breaststroke and the 50 breaststroke.
