Something to note...
For someone who is so dominant... no, dominant is not strong enough of a word. For someone who has been so transcendent in the sprint breaststroke races, Peaty certainly has some room for improvement in his pullouts.
Check out this series of photos from his 26.48 50m breaststroke Wednesday.
It is a hiccup that has been evident in multiple races by Peaty, including his 50m breastroke world record (26.42) at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, Russia, and his 100m breaststroke world record (57.13) at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Moral of the story: if Adam Peaty can clean up this detail of his race, we could see times posted that may last for a long, long time, because this guy is something special.
