MEDIA INFORMATION: Statement from British Swimming on the re-timing of Adam PEATY's world record

GLASGOW - British Swimming have issued the following statement on the re-timing of Great Britain's Adam PEATY's world record during the Glasgow 2018 European Championships at Tollcross International Swimming Centre on Saturday.

Times for nine races during the afternoon session were reported 0.10 seconds too fast, according to a statement by LEN, the European governing body of aquatics, including PEATY's 100m breaststroke final.

PEATY's world-record time, recorded as 57.00 seconds, has been amended to 57.10s.

British Swimming's national performance director, Chris SPICE, said: "We support LEN's vigilance in this matter and appreciate the time they have taken to make sure all times are correct.

"We want this event to be remembered for the amazing achievements of the athletes so it is important that the results are correct.

"We don't want this to take away from Adam's amazing performance which we all experienced in a fantastic arena."
