Peaty won TWO golds tonight!!
going 57.

It’s a pity that Peaty (yes, I said it) doesn’t have good start and turn for elite swimmer. In the mixed relay, Cordes was catching him in the turn, but Peaty immediately catching him back after a couple of strokes.
If Peaty improves his start and turn, he’ll take WR to Beamonesque level.

Peaty is a beast, such a consistent performer. Fantastic effort. Hope he stays healthy in the lead up to Rio.

@aswimfan Yep, noticed that catch-up by Cordes in the turn also – it seemed to be mostly down to the recovery of Peaty’s arms after the u/w stroke. If so, should be something that can be worked on.

This relay win is massive for GB. Regardless of the status people give to the event at the moment, it instantly made five British swimmers first time long-course world champions.
