Rio 2016 Olympics Peaty predicts more GB swimming medals

Adam Peaty hopes Great Britain's swimmers can build on his 100 metre breaststroke victory and deliver more medals at Rio 2016.

  • Published:

Olympic gold medallist Adam Peaty expects his Great Britain team-mates to follow his lead and claim further medals in the pool.

Peaty broke the world record for the second time at Rio 2016 as he raced to 100 metre breaststroke victory on Sunday, the 21-year-old finishing in 57.13 seconds.

His success gave Great Britain their first medal in Brazil, and he was quickly followed by fellow swimmer Jazz Carlin as she claimed silver in the 400m freestyle.

And Peaty believes the rest of Team GB's squad have the potential to boost their medal numbers in the coming days.

"Hopefully we'll push this forward now," he said. "I've given everything. 

"Not a lot was going through my mind. You see all the flags and each represents something. 

"I'm here representing one of the best countries on earth. We've shown that we're small but we pack a punch."
