Great Britain’s Adam Peaty matched his world-best semifinal time with another 26.66 in the men’s 50-meter breast finals at the 2016 European Championships.

Peaty proved the 26.66 wasn’t a fluke yesterday with all of the timing system issues surrounding his swim, as he matched that time clean tonight for the title.

Slovenia’s Peter John Stevens claimed silver with a time of 27.09 to move to third in the world behind Cameron van der Burgh (27.08).

Great Britain’s Ross Murdoch placed third in 27.31, while Lithuania’s Giedrius Titenis took fourth with a 27.46.

Sweden’s Johannes Skagius (27.54), Slovenia’s Damir Dugonjic (27.56), Serbia’s Caba Siladji (27.72) and Italy’s Andrea Toniato (27.79) grabbed the rest of the finishes.

Peter John Stevens, Slovenia’sown and also a Tennessee Vol through and through who no doubt bleeds orange and white.

No doubt from high atop Rocky Top Coach Ray AND General Bob are both a smilin’!
