Adam Peaty: Double world record holder can get better


The 20-year-old became the first man to swim the 100m breaststroke inside 58 seconds when he set a time of 57.92 seconds at the British Swimming Championships in April,

That came eight months after breaking the 50m breaststroke record.

“There are lots of areas I can improve to get every millimetre out of myself,” Peaty told BBC East Midlands Today.

“I am more pleased to be the first person to go under 58 seconds. I never thought I would get anywhere near it.

“It boosted my confidence massively knowing I can go that fast.

“It’s a great position to be in, but it’s now about re-focusing and re-motivating to see what I can get.”
