Adam Peaty does not need any introduction. His achievements are unquestionable. Peaty trains 30 hours a week. He was named the 2018 World and European Male Swimmer of the Year by Swimming World Magazine. The fastest breaststroker on the planet and does not plan to stop.
Peaty is convinced no one else is training as hard as he does in his field. At a younger age, Peaty was dealing with pre-race nerves so much that he felt uncomfortable about taking part in finals. As a result, he learned how to use his emotions in order to create some kind of aggression, which is beneficial for winning.
Swimming technique used during breaststroke can be confusing. The secret is using the legs as much as possible and reaching out with the arms. Peaty agrees that 70% of the power needed at breaststroke comes from the legs. We’ll soon find out whether that’s enough for gold. Peaty’s 2019 FINA Wold Championship odds on 100m are 1.15 for a win, while his odds for not getting the first place are 4.74.
