Will Peaty Rebreak his World Record: GMM presented by SwimOutlet.com

Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com

Olympic superstar Adam Peaty crushed the field at the Indy Pro Swim swimming to a new U.S. Open Record, 58.8, in the 100m breast. Not bad for traveling so far and being tired from mid-season training.

After his blistering 57.1 100m breast at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio, British Swimming’s pride of the nation took time off to rest and recharge his batteries.  He’s been earning endorsement revenue, taking holidays and getting inked.

At the Pro Swim Indy he shared a few personal insights. He benches about 290 pounds (x2 reps) loves HBO’s Ballers, and loves his Arena gear.

At World Championships this summer, what do you think he will go in the 100m breast? He’s been 57.1.  Will he dip under 57 in Budapest?   I think so. I think Peaty pulls down a 56.88.  What do you think?

Yes. Exact times, I don’t know, but I think it’s as close to inevitable as you get in sport.

Peaty & Marshall have been talking about ‘project 56’ since 2015 and they just don’t seem to fail when they target something.

Having said all that – The 50 will see fireworks in Budapest. Peaty has improved his 100 by almost a second since he last swum a tapered 50.


I bet he benches over 300 lbs before he breaks 57.


He better bench 300 before Budapest this summer. We all know 56 is coming


I bet he already benches over 300 dude is huge


The Dude is incredibly well build – one of a kind for sure .


Him and CVDB


I don’t know how serious you are, but he can 100% bench over 300 right now


56.85 in 2017.
