Adam Peaty Torso 4/7/16

Adam Peaty made history at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games as he not only became the first member of Team GB to take gold in Brazil but the first male Olympic Champion in the pool since 1988, as he won the Men's 100m Breaststroke.

The European Championships in the May of 2016 were a great warm-up and a sign of things to come for Peaty as she claimed four  titles including two individual in the Men's 50m and 100m Breaststroke.

At the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, Russia Peaty took gold in the 50 and 100m Breaststroke events as well making up one quarter of the winning British 4x100 mixed medley relay team which also broke the World record for a second time.

Peaty (England) had a strong 2014 season cementing his position in the world’s elite winning 100m Breaststroke gold for England on his Commonwealth debut in Glasgow before winning four golds - including the 50m and 100m Breaststroke double - at the European Championships in Berlin, breaking the 50m Breaststroke world record in the process.

His breakthrough season came in 2013 when he won 50m Breaststroke silver and 100m Breaststroke bronze in Sheffield before ducking under a minute over 100m Breast for the first time to win gold at the ASA National Youth Championships.

Finally bringing the season to a close with a first senior Championship appearance, setting personal bests in all three breaststroke events at the European Short Course Championships in Herning.

His first taste of international experience came with a couple of final berths on the 2012 FINA World Cup circuit.
