Adam. Peaty. When this man is in the pool for the 100m breaststroke, the question is always: "how low can he go?" It is always a race against the clock. Peaty dropped a silky smooth 57.79 Monday in Sheffield -- certainly the No.1 time in the world this year. He got off to a little bit of a slow start, touching at the 50m mark in 27.01 -- 0.35 over his world record pace -- and brought it home in a 30.78. With that swim, Peaty now exclusively holds the top eight performances of all-time. Ross Murdoch touched for silver in 1:00.00 and James Wilby snagged the bronze in 1:00.05.
