British swimmer Adam Peaty succeeded to take down the world record in the semifinal of the men’s 50m breaststroke event at the 16th FINA World Championships in Kazan. He finished the race with 26.42.

The previous record was set in the preliminary heat Tuesday morning when South Africa’s Cameron van der Burgh covered the distance in 26.62. Interestingly, Peaty already clocked this time at the 2014 European Championships in Berlin but back then this record was annulled by the International Swimming Federation (FINA) after the Brit failed his erythropoietin (EPO) doping test.
