Adam Peaty 57.92 and New 100 Breaststroke World Record


Adam Peaty’s world record in the 100 breaststroke today at the British nationals capped off a session in which he was the only person to beat the very tough automatic qualifying times for the world championship team set by British Swimming.

Peaty blazed through the final with a 57.92, beating the world record of 58.46 by Cameron Van Der Burgh swum at the 2012 Olympics. Peaty split 27.04 at 50 meters to put him just three hundredths ahead of Van Der Burgh’s split then churned out a stunning 30.88 to become the first swimmer under 58 seconds.
