British Olympic champion and World Record holder Adam Peaty is on the move, currently making his way to Florida to take on an intense block of training.
‘Florida here we come’ is the sentiment accompanying Peaty’s Instagram story posted today, January 8th.
Speaking to SwimSwam, 27-year-old Peaty reveals he’ll be training at Deerfield and Pompano Beach Aquatic Centres for the next 3 weeks. Both cities are located within Broward County located in Southeast Florida just outside Fort Lauderdale.
“The purpose of the camp is to fast track fitness and get some sun as this is my first training camp since Australia in January 2020,” Peaty told us today.
After reaping repeat 100m breaststroke Olympic gold this summer at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, Peaty took a break from the pool and tried out the competition on the dancefloor instead. The father to son, George, tried his hand at the British celebrity dance television program Strictly Come Dancing, where he exited prior to the finale.
Post-television celebrity, Peaty and longtime coach Mel Marshall disclosed their latest project entitled ‘Project Immortal.’ The endeavor represents the pair’s quest to throw down a 100m breaststroke marker that will not only lower the World Record but establish a benchmark to stand the test of time.
