Nic Fink Defies Odds to Win World Breaststroke Gold

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

In the 100m breaststroke final at the World Championships, Nic Fink claimed victory and added the long-course world title to his short-course crown. The USA athlete had a strong start, pulling ahead of the competition, and maintained his lead throughout despite an attack from Adam Peaty. Fink finished with a time of 58.57, while Peaty came in third place with a time of 59.19.

Nicolo Martinenghi also had a standout performance, moving from fifth place at halfway to take second place in the event. He achieved the fastest second 50 with a time of 31.41, just narrowly missing out on first place.

Fink now has a medal of each color at the last three World Championships, 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: Fink 27.53/31.41: Martinenghi
