STAFFORDSHIRE bred swimmer Adam Peaty took his third European title of Glasgow 2018 with victory in the 50m breaststroke – once again bettering his championship record.
Already champion in the 100m breaststroke and 4x100m mixed medley, Adam claimed the title comfortably, with Italy’s Fabio Scozzoli closest to the 11-time European gold medallist, who is looking to make it 12 unbeaten in the men’s medley relay on the final day of competition.
The former Painsley RC College, Cheadle student said: “It’s three out of three at the moment and hopefully that streak will continue tomorrow (Aug 9).
“I’m trying to enjoy it, and hopefully I will have a tussle on my hands tomorrow.
“As you get more mature you realise it’s not about managing your time at these meets, it’s about managing your energy. To be consistent in that you have to be mature.”
