Tokyo Olympics: Record-breaking Adam Peaty wins first Team GB gold of 2020

Swimming takes centre stage again during the first week of the Tokyo Olympics, with Adam Peaty having already retained his 100m breaststroke crown.

Peaty became the first British swimmer to successfully defend an Olympic title after roaring to victory in Monday’s final in 57.37 seconds, the fifth-fastest time in the history of the event, with runner-up Arno Kamminga a distant 0.63secs adrift.

There was an upset in the women’s 400 metres freestyle as Ariarne Titmus dethroned the USA’s defending champion, Katie Ledecky. The six-time Olympic gold medallist hit the front early on at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre and was just ahead at the halfway stage, but Titmus upped her level to come home in a time of three minutes and 56.69 seconds.

Elsewhere, there was a major shock in the men’s 400 metres freestyle as 18-year-old Ahmed Hafnaoui stunned a series of swimming’s major stars to clinch only the fourth gold medal in Tunisia’s history.
