Yesterday, we posted fan footage of Adam Peaty’s barrier-breaking 100-meter breaststroke world record.

Today, British Swimming managed to upload a much cleaner look at Peaty’s historic swim.

Original report on the world record:

Adam Peaty’s world record in the 100 breaststroke today at the British nationals capped off a session in which he was the only person to beat the very tough automatic qualifying times for the world championship team set by British Swimming.

Peaty blazed through the final with a 57.92, beating the world record of 58.46 by Cameron van der Burgh swum at the 2012 Olympics. Peaty split 27.04 at 50 meters to put him just three hundredths ahead of Van Der Burgh’s split then churned out a stunning 30.88 to become the first swimmer under 58 seconds. The 20-year-old now owns two long course world records, claiming the 50 breast record in the semifinals of the European championships last summer with a 26.62. Peaty had already owned the world’s fastest time with a 59.04 from earlier this year that now seems fairly pedestrian by his newly-formed standards.

 

The original video from British Swimming edited out the turn. Here’s a fairly clean video from the stands that includes the turn:

Why does this footage leave out the pullouts? Especially the pullout off the wall… This seems very fishy.
