‘Participating in the World Championships for the first time in 5 years’ PT ranked 3rd in the 100m breaststroke “Toward the Olympics”

Adam Pitty (29, Great Britain), who returned to the World Aquatics Championships after 5 years, won his 11th medal at the World Championships. PT took third place with a time of 59.10 seconds in the men’s 100m breaststroke final at the 2024 International Aquatics Federation World Championships held at the Aspire Dome in Doha, Qatar, on the 13th (Korean time).Although it is an unremarkable result considering his brilliant career of winning three consecutive world championships in this event in Kazan in 2015, Budapest in 2017, and Gwangju in 2019, Pitty placed significance on being on the podium. In an interview with the BBC after the game, Pitti said, “It was great to be able to compete with the world’s best athletes. Winning a medal is not easy. Now, we will make detailed adjustments for the Paris Olympics.”

Pitti, who was the ‘strongest breaststroker’, did not participate in the 2022 Budapest and 2023 Fukuoka competitions .In 2022, he suffered a foot injury, and later complained of mental fatigue and left the swimming pool for a while .He underwent collarbone surgery ahead of the Fukuoka Games. While PT, who won three Olympic gold medals and eight World Championship gold medals, was away, Qin Haiyang (24, China) stood tall as the ‘strongest breaststroker. ’Qin Haiyang, who was evaluated only as ‘Asia’s top athlete’ until 2022, won the individual events of men’s 50m (26.29), 100m (57.69), and 200m (2:05.48) at the Fukuoka World Championships in July 2023. After sweeping the team, she participated in the final of the 400m mixed medley relay and helped China win the gold medal, winning four gold medals. However, Petey still holds the men’s 50m breaststroke (25.95) and 100m (56.88) world records .Qin Haiyang did not participate in this competition.

The battle between Qin Haiyang and PT as the ‘new and old breaststroke powerhouses’ is expected to take place at the Paris Olympics, which opens in July. On this day, Nick Pink (30, USA) won the men’s 100m breaststroke final with a time of 58.57 seconds .Pink, who tied for second place in Fukuoka last year, won her first World Championship gold medal in this event .The total number of individual world championship gold medals, including relay, increased to four .In the Fukuoka men’s 100m breaststroke, Pink, Nicolo Martinengi (24, Italy), and Arno Kamingha (28, Netherlands) tied for second place with a time of 58.72 seconds. Martigengi took second place alone in Doha this year with a time of 58.84 seconds .Kamingha finished in 5th place with a time of 59.22 seconds and did not stand on the podium.PT, who placed third, added a medal five years after the 2019 Gwangju Games, increasing the total number of individual medals at the World Championships 온라인카지노 to 11 (8 gold, 1 silver, and 2 bronze).
