Leading Olympic Speaker, Adam Peaty is an English Olympian who competes in swimming and specialises in the breaststroke. Currently holding the world record in the 100-metre breaststroke he is one of the finest swimmers the sport has to offer. He has also represented Great Britain at the Olympic Games, FINA World Championships, and European Championships, and England in the Commonwealth Games. Peaty is using his wealth of experience and abundance of career anecdotes to become an after-dinner speaker who specialises in topics including peak performance, mental resilience and maintaining determination.
After beating a childhood fear of water, Peaty eventually joined both the Dove Vally Swimming Club and the City of Derby Swimming Club. His coach Melanie Marshall highlighted his potential when she saw him practice breaststroke and so he began training in the sport full-time. At his first senior event, Adam achieved three personal best times in breaststroke events at the 2013 European Short Course Swimming Championships.
The 2014 Commonwealth Games saw Adam break a Commonwealth Games record in the 50-metre breaststroke and win the 4 x 100-metre medley relay. He went onto break a world record at the 2014 European Championships where he also won gold in the 100-metre breaststroke event and the 4 x 100-metre medley relay. With his career continuing to be highly successful, Peaty would become a 2015 World Champion in 100-metre breaststroke in which he retained for a further four years.
The 2016 Summer Olympics proved also to be a success for Adam. He swam at a record-breaking time of 57.55 seconds during the 100-metre breaststroke event and managed to secure Team GB’s first gold medal of the Olympic Games.
Most recently, Adam has broken his own world record in the semi-final of the 100-metre breaststroke at the 2019 World Aquatics Championships.
