As great as Adam Peaty is, he had no business winning this race. His under-waters almost cost him the race. If Van Der Burgh had a better turn, then he would’ve out-touched Peaty. It was a fantastic race though and will be a great rivalry for the next few years.


Wow his start is AWFUL. Can’t imagine what he can go if he can get that down, and not have to swim the whole race from behind


I don’t think Peaty’s start is awful so much as Van Der Burgh’s is awesome.
