Thursday, 20 April 2017 : Olympic champion Adam Peaty narrowly missed out on breaking his own world record as he claimed the 50m breaststroke title at the British Swimming Championships in Sheffield.
England’s Peaty, who claimed the 100m on day one, finished six hundredths of a second outside his record in a “very frustrating” time of 26.48 seconds.
But the 22-year-old, who has already booked his place at July’s World Championships in Budapest, now believes he could go below the 26-second mark this summer.
Having given his 100m gold medal away to a fan in the crowd, Peaty said he was saving his 50m medal for his grandmother.
Jocelyn Ulyett, 18, broke the British record en route to a surprise victory in the 200m breaststroke, beating Olympians Chloe Tutton and Molly Renshaw and describing her performance as “crazy”.
Her time of two minutes 22.08 seconds helped her become only the second British swimmer to gain an automatic World qualifying time.
Double Olympic silver medallist Jazz Carlin was over 10 seconds outside the automatic time as she won the 800m freestyle in eight minutes 30.56 seconds.
