Adam Peaty seems to be an unstoppable force in the pool. This summer he completed an astonishing 'treble quadruple' in the European Championships, winning gold in the 50m breaststroke, 100m breaststroke, 4x100m medley and 4x100m mixed medley for the third time in a row.
It followed what Peaty classed as a disappointing 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, where he had to settle for silver in the 50m breaststroke after winning gold over 100m.
In 2017, Peaty did a 50m and 100m breaststroke double at the World Championships in Budapest. In the process, he broke the 50m world record twice and became the first swimmer ever to go under 26 seconds. He has set himself a similar goal in the 100m breaststroke called Project 56, where he is aiming to go under 57 seconds. Peaty thought he'd come close at Glasgow 2018 when he set a new world record of 57.00, but that time was later revised to 57.10 after a fault with the race timing system was discovered.
At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Peaty became Great Britain's first male Olympic champion in the pool since 1988 when he won gold in the 100m breaststroke. FINA later awarded him the award of Best Male Swimming Performance at Rio 2016 after he twice broke the world record.
After showing promise in 2012 and 2013, Peaty burst on to the scene at the highest level in 2014 at the Commonwealth Games and Euros. At the conclusion of Glasgow 2018, he currently has 22 international gold medals to his name, as well as three world records.
