Another record-breaking swim from PeatyAugust 7, 2018
Adam Peaty’s bid to become a three-time quadruple European champion is still on course after another record-breaking swim in Glasgow.
In this morning’s European Championships heats, Peaty clocked 26.50 in the 50m Breaststroke to break the event record of 26.62 he set in Berlin four years ago.
Peaty has already won two titles in Glasgow to take his European gold medal tally to 10.
Duo qualify for final
Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Aimee Willmott both won their heats in this morning’s 200m Individual Medley.
O’Connor was the second fastest qualifier behind Katinka Hosszu of Hungary.
Abbie Wood narrowly missed out on a spot in tonight’s final due to being the third fastest qualifier from Great Britain.
Tonight’s 200m Backstroke final will also see two English swimmers battle it out for a medal. Brodie Williams qualified in fifth position while Luke Greenbank qualified ninth.
And Ellie Faulkner and Holly Hibbott, along with Wales’ Kat Greenslade and Scotland’s Lucy Hope, will be aiming to follow on from the relay successes so far in Glasgow with a medal in the 4x200m Freestyle.
The team comfortably won their heat in this morning’s heats and finished second fastest overall.
Meanwhile, Freya Anderson and Anna Hopkin both progressed to the semi-finals of the 100m freestyle, qualifying in sixth and 16th place respectively.
