It wasn’t a world record, but Brit Adam Peaty repeated his World Championship gold from 2015 on Monday night in Budapest at the FINA World Championships. Peaty won the race with a 57.47 and a championship record. Peaty was just shy of his 57.13 world record from last year.

Kevin Cordes picked up a silver in the race with a 58.79 and Russian Kirill Prigoda was third at 59.05. Prigoda’s time was a Russian national record.

Japan’s Yasuhiro Koseki (59.10), USA’s Cody Miller (59.11), Lithuania’s Andrius Sidlauskas (59.21), China’s Yan Zibei (59.42) and Britain’s Ross Murdoch (59.45) also swam in the championship final.

Peaty’s win is the third gold medal for Britain in the 100 breast at the World Championships. He joins himself (2015) and David Wilkie (1975) as World Championship winners in this event.
