Adam Peaty has admitted that he is "relieved" to have secured his spot at this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro after a convincing display at the British Swimming Championships in Glasgow.
"I'm relieved to have booked my spot. Since September after the Worlds it has been in the back of mind that I've still got to qualify and I know what these guys are like, they are fast. I never took that for granted but thankfully my training has helped out," Peaty told The Guardian afterwards.
"I know that wasn't anywhere near my best, though. I'm glad I came first but 58.4... well, it was better than the time I recorded when I won the worlds but I know what went wrong in that race. Hopefully next time I'm going to be out a little bit faster and come back a bit stronger."
Peaty will now go on to compete in the 200m breaststroke on Friday.
