Olympic champion Adam Peaty claimed victory in the 100m breaststroke World Championship final in Budapest on Monday night but missed out on his hopes of setting a sub-57 second time.

The 22-year-old swimmer set the then world record of 26.42 seconds two years ago en route to winning 50m breaststroke gold at Kazan in Russian Federation.

The 22-year-old was just outside his world record time of 25.95 seconds, set in the semi-finals yesterday.

Cameron ver der Burgh, the South African 2012 Olympic champion over 100m, scratched the longer sprint in order to challenge Peaty over 50m and was a next-best 26.54 seconds.

Peaty, alongside James Guy, Georgia Davies and Siobhan O'Connor, was unable to increase his medal tally although the team came fifth, narrowly missing out on the podium even though two of the group struggled with illness in the build-up.

"I've learned from the experience that I've had the last two years." .

In his semi-final he was a little bit lower in the water as he set his world record. "I am looking for areas of where I can improve and hopefully get down to mid-25".

Nothing is confirmed, but he has hinted he will race at Commonwealth Games trials in December over the distance in a bid to double up before the 2020 Olympics.

"It's 10 a.m., and it's quite early for a world record", commented Peaty. "This morning I wasn't prepared to do a world record".

"I'm a massive believer that all areas of your life need to be equal for you to perform at your best", he added. "I just kind of have to work through the prelims as easy as I can to keep myself rested".

"Unlike in Rio, it was a very different objective for me".

However, Lima insisted Peaty will not have everything his own way on Wednesday.

Having already set a world record with her leadoff leg in the 4x100 freestyle relay, Sjostrom almost took down another mark in the fly with a winning time of 55.53.

Masse's time of 58.10 seconds broke the previous mark of 58.12 seconds set by Britain's Gemma Spofforth at the 2009 world championships. He made it to the wall in 1:56.70 to secure his place in tomorrow's final.
