Brit Sensation Pulls 50-M World Record in FINA Heat

Brit Sensation Pulls 50-M World Record in FINA Heat

"This morning prepared me to do a world record again, it was just me easing through the stroke, touching the wall, progressing to the semi-final", said Peaty.

"That world record is two years old, so it's due another push on".

"Every opportunity I get to race I give it my all because you never know, the 2016 bronze medallist in the discipline said. I enjoyed it but obviously it's nothing without the gold so I need to focus now, be neutral and see what we get tomorrow".

It's the second world record set at this year's championships after Sweden's Sarah Sjostrom established a split of 51.71 in the women's 4×100 free relay on Sunday.

Adam Peaty secured his second gold medal on day four of the FINA World Swimming Championships in Budapest.

He was half-a-second faster than the rest of the field on Wednesday night.

Australia's Emma McKeon, who won silver in the women's 100m butterfly on Monday, and Katinka Hosszu, who won the women's 200m IM gold, were just behind. This morning everyone was like "Project 25" and I was like "go on then". "I just kind of have to work through the prelims as easy as I can to keep myself rested".

'Kuwait orders Iran envoy to leave'
There, security forces found weapons and explosives, believed to belong to infiltrators from Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah. In August 2015, Kuwait said it had busted the 26-member cell and seized arms, ammunition and explosives from them.

"This morning I came in nice and relaxed". "Lot going on when there's medal ceremonies and warmdown and getting to the ready room. Try to limit the walking and stay off my feet as much as I can during that whole process".

The swimmer, who refused to sit in a bath as a child because he was scared of water, has now won five World Championships golds, having also triumphed in the 4x100 mixed medley relay two years ago.

Italy' Gregorio Paltrinieri was quickest at 7:45.31 with Sun 3.97secs back as the fifth fastest.

With two Hungarian swimmers in the final, the home crowd will roar their deafening support at the Duna Arena.

Japan's Daiya Seto, the 400m medley world champion in 2013 and 2015, was second fastest.

Three years to the day since the 22-year-old from Uttoxeter alerted the world to his preternatural talent by winning gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2014, Peaty has now surely become one of the greatest athletes in the sport.
