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

Nic Fink has won the 100m breaststroke gold at the World Championships in Doha, adding a long-course title to his short-course crown. The USA athlete had a strong start, pulling ahead early on, and maintained his lead throughout despite an attack from Adam Peaty. Fink finished in a time of 58.57, claiming his country’s first gold of the World Championships.

Nicolo Martinenghi came from fifth at halfway to take second place in 58.84, with Peaty finishing third in 59.19 and returning to the world long-course podium for the first time since Gwangju 2019.

Fink now has a medal of each color at the last three worlds: silver in Fukuoka last year, which he shared with Arno Kamminga and Martinenghi; and bronze at Budapest 2022.

Splits: 26.98/31.59: Peaty; 27.53/31.41: Fink; 27.08/32.02: Martinenghi
