Nic Fink Claims Gold in 100m Breaststroke as Peaty Makes Podium Comeback

In Doha, Nic Fink won the 100m breaststroke gold to claim the world long-course title, adding it to his short-course crown. Fink had a massive start and was well in front, leading throughout despite a strong attack from Adam Peaty. He finished in 58.57 seconds and secured his country’s first gold of the World Championships.

Nicolo Martinenghi came from fifth at halfway to take second place in 58.84 seconds. The Italian swimmer had the fastest second 50 of 31.41 seconds, which helped him overtake Peaty and secure the bronze medal in 59.19 seconds.

Fink now has a medal of every color at the last three worlds, including silver in Fukuoka last year in a three-way tie with Arno Kamminga and Martinenghi, which followed bronze at Budapest 2022.

Splits: 26.98/31.59: Peaty (Bronze) – Splits: 27.53/31.41: Martinenghi (Silver) – Splits: 27
