OLYMPIC swimming champion Adam Peaty has issued a global-warning to his challengers at the coming Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in Australia.
The 23 year old world superstar, who was raised in Uttoxeter, has struck gold twice at the 2018 British Swimming Championships, in Edinburgh, successfully defending his 50m and 100m breaststroke titles.
The former Painsley College student is nowadays living in Leicestershire to be near his Loughborough training base, where he is coached by former top swimmer Melanie Marshall.
Peaty warmed up for his trip Down Under next month by winning the 100m breaststroke final in the Royal Commonwealth Pool on Saturday night, and then followed up with a fully expected victory in the 50m breaststroke final this evening.

Peaty commented : “It was great to get out there and race but now its time to get back in Commonwealth Games mode.
