Adam Peaty sets world record to win European gold
Adam Peaty broke his own world record to defend his 100m Breaststroke title at the 2018 European Championships in Glasgow. The Olympic champion took the world marker down to 57.10 as he powered ahead of a world class field at Tollcross. James Wilby ensured a British and English one-two on the podium as he broke 59 seconds for the first time, claiming silver on 58.64. But while Wilby’s effort elevated him to the joint fourth fastest man in history, there was no keeping with the defending champion as he forged clear.
