BUDAPEST — Britain’s Adam Peaty narrowly missed breaking his own world record again as he won the men’s  五0m breaststroke gold at the world championships on Wednesday to complete another sprint double.

Peaty, already a winner over  一00m in Budapest, clocked  二 五. 九 九 seconds over  五0m, just 0.0 四sec short of his record time in Tuesday’s semi-finals, with Brazil’s Joao Gomes Junior taking silver, 0. 五 三sec behind.

"I know I can do faster than that, maybe in a few years I can come back and actually do it, but for now I’m more than over the moon,"大众said Peaty.

Britain increased their swi妹妹ing gold medal tally in Budapest to three with Peaty retaining the two titles he won in Kazan in  二0 一 五 to add to Ben Proud’s victory in the men’s  五0m butterfly on Monday.

The  二 二-year-old Peaty has been in stunning form this week.

He narrowly failed to beat his own  一00m world record of  五 七. 一 三sec from last year’s Olympic final in Rio, but still won gold on Monday with a championship record of  五 七. 四 七sec.

Over the shorter distance, Peaty roared out of the blocks in Tuesday morning’s heats to clock  二 六. 一0sec and smash his own world record.

He then became the first swi妹妹er to go under the  二 六-second mark when he clocked  二 五. 九 五sec in the semi-finals.

But Peaty says the knowledge that he is inspiring a rival to his title as the world’s best male breaststroker will push him harder in training.

"Being a champion — an Olympic champion, a world champion — and getting the wins makes people think you are unbeatable,公众said Peaty.

"But there is probably a kid like that saying ’I can beat Adam Peaty’ and I hope there is, as that’s a good challenge for me.

"It takes a special type of person to think that, and that’s where I made that step, to say ’yes, I can take on the rest of the world’.

"Everyone’s beatable, it’s just when and where."

South Africa’s Cameron van der Burgh, the  二00 九 and  二0 一 三 world champion in the  五0m breaststroke, earned bronze at 0. 六 一sec and promptly paid tribute to Peaty’s powerful performances.

"I think I have to retire and give it a few years and come back when he’s older,"大众joked the  二 九-year-old Van der Burgh.

"It’s really impressive. It’s not even breaststroke anymore, he’s swi妹妹ing like a new kind of stroke, like a metamorphosis between (butter)fly and breast.

"You have to have a lot of power, obviously, to swim it and it’s suited to his kind of stroke, but it’s difficult because not everyone can do it.

"Probably you would have to start imitating that kind of fly movement to beat him.公众— AFP
