Peaty retains 100m breaststroke title at World Championships

Adam Peaty beat his world championship-record time from two years ago

Great Britain's Adam Peaty has defended his title at the World Championships by winning the men's 100m breaststroke final in Budapest.

He returned to the pool to break the 50m world record of 26.42 he set at the 2015 World Championships in Russian Federation.

Peaty is bidding to be the first man to retain the 50 breaststroke title at a worlds, and he wasn't surprised to beat his previous best-mark.

Britain increased their swimming gold medal tally in Budapest to three with Peaty retaining the two titles he won in Kazan in 2015 to add to Ben Proud's victory in the men's 50m butterfly on Monday.

"We're starting to look at very fast times now for the 50m breaststroke and I'm pretty sure I took an extra stroke that I shouldn't have taken, which slowed me down, so that's in the bank now for the next one".

King eclipsed a four-year-old 100-meter-breastroke record, previously held by Lithuania's Ruta Meilutyte, by a little over two-tenths of a second. "I think it didn't matter if it was prelims, semis or finals, I was just going to try my best".

"Then after this morning people were saying Project 25 and I said "Yes, go on then".

Having already set a world record with her leadoff leg in the 4x100 freestyle relay, Sjostrom almost took down another mark in the fly with a winning time of 55.53. He appeared as shocked as anybody, however, when his time was revealed, shaking his head in disbelief at a second world-record time that day. "In the final it's obviously going to be more tense since you're fighting for a title not the world record".

"I'm trying to give it back home, get the young ones swimming, get the young ones racing and teach them to have no fear at all". I just dived in tonight and was like "I feel good" I wasn't that far behind after the start, which was a bonus for me.

Australia's Mack Horton, the Olympic 400m champion who lost Sunday's final to Sun, dropped out of the 800m to focus on Saturday's 1500m freestyle heats.

Both at their first major championships, Dawson had qualified for the final of the 100m backstroke, while Vasey went into the final of the 100m breaststroke.
