2021 Olympic swimming results: Adam Peaty wins 100m breaststroke

The favorite rolled to victory in the men’s 100-meter breaststroke.

Great Britain’s Adam Peaty has gone back-to-back in the 100 meter breaststroke at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, winning the event he also captured in the 2016 Games in Rio. He finished in 57.37 seconds. Dutch swimmer Arno Kamminga finished second at 58.00 seconds and Italian Nicolo Martinenghi finished third with a time of 58.33

Of all the swimming athletes in the Games, Peaty was by far the biggest favorite to win a gold medal at DraftKings Sportsbook. The eight-time world champion and 16-time European champion is also an MBE as presented by the Queen of England, and is one of the biggest sporting starts in the United Kingdom. At one point, he was the holder of the 20-fastest times in the 100-meter breaststroke in human history.

Michael Andrew was the high-performing American, finishing in fourth place.
