Current 100m breaststroke World Record Holder, Adam Peaty from Great Britain, scored a winning time of 59.55 to take his signature event at the Edinburgh International meet this past weekend. While at the meet, Peaty also raced in the series of ‘skins’ for the 50m breaststroke event, ultimately winning the challenge which the 21-year-old calls a “showcase of fitness.”
In his post-race interview, Peaty points to the fact he feels he is in the best shape he’s ever been in and is simply looking forward to improving upon his times come British Trials in April.
