Profile

It would not be inaccurate to describe Adam as Europe’s golden boy of swimming, at least as far as 2014 and 2015 have gone. After showing promise in 2012 and 2013, he burst on to the scene at the highest levels in 2014 at the Commonwealth Games and Euros. Having narrowly missed the 200 breast podium in Glasgow, he broke the Games 100 breast record in each of his 3 swims as he beat idol-rival Cameron van Der Burgh to the title. The 50 marked another fierce battle as the South African edged the final despite Adam setting a new European record. Weeks later he became the breakout star of the Euros, winning 4 golds and setting two world records (50 breast 26.62, 4x100 mixed medley 3:44.02).

Peaty rounded off the year with three silvers at Doha’s SC Worlds. In 2015 he upped the stakes once more, breaking the 100 breast world record at British nationals, and then once again getting the upper hand over Van Der Burgh at the Worlds in Kazan. In 50 breast, the South African matched his world mark in his heat, only for Adam to set a new record in the semi and edge out his rival in the final, while at 100m the two exchanged Championship records before the Brit once again edged the final.

At the Rio 2016 Olympics Adam brought home the first medal of the games with Gold in the 100m breaststroke, he then went on to win silver in the 4x100 metres medley relay.
