BRITAIN’S Adam Peaty said it was about time that he broke his own men’s 50-meter breaststroke world-record yesterday in the heats of the FINA world championships.
The 22-year-old clocked 26.10 seconds Puma Suede Sale , lowering his own mark of 26.42 set two years ago in the semifinals of the world championships in Kazan, Russia, on his way to winning the final.
Fresh from winning the men’s 100 breaststroke gold on Monday night, Peaty blasted out his world-record time to qualify for Tuesday night’s semifinals.
“I wasn’t going for a world record, I was just trying to qualify for the semis,” said Peaty, who says he can go even faster.
“If I can pick up a few hundredths or tenths this evening Puma Sneakers Sale , I’d be happy. It’s still only 10 in the morning, which is very early for a world record, but we’ll see.
“That world record was two years old, so it was kind of due another push on.”
It is the second world record to fall at the world championships in Budapest.
Sarah Sjostrom of Sweden became the first woman to swim the 100 freestyle in under 52 seconds on Sunday.
It is the third time Peaty has held the 50 world record in his career.
His main rival in today’s final looks to be Cameron van der Burgh, who was only 0.44 seconds behind Peaty in the heats.
The South African was the joint record holder with Peaty before the Briton lowered his own time in Kazan.
Kevin Cordes of the United States, the 50 bronze medalist in 2015, and Brazil’s Joao Gomes were also within a second of Peaty’s time in the heats.
“I saw Cam and Kevin going quite fast Puma Shoes Sale , obviously I was just trying to put a marker down, but I was quite relaxed,” said Peaty.
Van der Burgh, the 50 silver medalist two years ago, was unimpressed with Peaty’s time. “World records in heats don’t win finals,” said the South African. “Now we know what he is capable of, we can go back and plan on going forward.”
ARUSHA Puma Classic Shoes , Tanzania, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Tanzania has come up with a national land use planning commission to resolve the escalating human-wildlife conflicts, particularly for communities living close to the country's national parks.
