Unbelievably, Peaty is unbeaten in his prime event for four years, and it doesn’t look like he’s going to be caught any time soon. The Uttoxeter-born Olympic champion is currently working towards his Project 56, to swim the 100m in 56 seconds, and his original time of exactly 57 seconds put him within a hair’s breadth of achieving his target. There were a few nervy moments as his world-record was nearly snatched away from him as an error with the timing configuration meant his official time was changed to 57.10s which fortunately left with three-hundredths of a second to spare!
