Rebecca Adlington, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, is thrilled by Adam Peaty’s surprise performance in winning a medal at the recent competition. According to her, Peaty’s primary focus at this point is on getting back to his top form for the Olympics and peaking in the summer. Adlington believes that Peaty is well-positioned to achieve this goal and is confident that the British team has enough talent to win multiple medals in Paris.
In addition to Peaty, Adlington highlighted other talented swimmers on the British team, including Matt Richards, Tom Dean, and Duncan Scott. She believes that these swimmers deserve more recognition for their achievements and should be celebrated as much as Peaty if he wasn’t such a standout performer. Despite this, Adlington expressed confidence in the team’s overall strength and believes they are well-prepared for success in Paris.
