ON THE COVER

Adam Peaty, 23, was named Swimming World’s Male World Swimmer of the Year for the second time in his career (2015, 2018). At the European Championships in August, he lowered his world record in the men’s 100 meter breast to 57.10 and came away with four gold medals—becoming Great Britain’s first three-time quadruple champion at that meet. By the end of 2018’s long course season, Peaty held the 11 top times ever swum in the 50 breast and the 14 fastest times ever swum in the 100 breast. (This year’s World and Regional Swimmers of the Year are featured on pages 16-23, with the Top 10 Performances of 2018 highlighted on pages 24-27.) [PHOTO BY LAPRESSE/ PROVIDED BY ARENA]
