Adam Peaty’s unreal breaststroke leg keyed Great Britain’s victory in the men’s 400-meter medley relay to close out the 2016 European Championships. The hometown crowd definitely was happy to close out the meet with a pair of relay victories.

Peaty unloaded a smoking time of 58.08 in the breaststroke leg as Christopher Walker-Hebborn (54.23), Peaty, James Guy (51.69) and Duncan Scott (48.15) posted the winning time of 3:32.15, nearly two seconds ahead of the rest of the pack.

France’s Ben Stasiulis (54.73), Giacomo Perez Dortona (1:00.23), Mehdy Metella (51.38) and Florent Manaudou (47.55) took silver with a time of 3:33.89.

Hungary’s Gabor Balog (54.40), Gabor Financsek (1:01.45), Laszlo Cseh (50.33) and Richard Bohus (47.94) claimed third in 3:34.12.

Greece (3:34.41), Lithuania (3:35.31), Sweden (3:37.39) and Ireland (3:37.47) finished fourth through seventh with clean swims.

Italy was disqualified due to an early relay takeoff between the third and fourth legs.
