Adam Peaty OBE


Adam Peaty has already established himself as the most dominant British swimmer ever and will look to build on that in the competition where he first made his name.

Back in 2014, Peaty, then training at City of Derby, won two gold medals for Team England in the 100m breaststroke and the 4x100m medley relay.

Since then he has gone on to win 16 European titles, eight world titles and three Olympic gold medals, becoming the first British swimmer ever to retain an Olympic swimming title.

He won two further Commonwealth gold medals in Gold Coast, and will head to Birmingham looking to claim the 50m breaststroke, the only major title to have so far eluded him.

Aside from his swimming, he became a father for the first time in September 2020, with son George-Anderson.  

After competing at his second Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2021, Peaty competed in Strictly Come Dancing, coming ninth, while he was also awarded an OBE in the 2022 New Year’s Honour.
