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 to his short-course crown and becoming the first American to do so. With a huge start, Fink took an early lead and held onto it despite a strong attack from Adam Peaty. In the end, Fink finished in 58.57 seconds, just ahead of Martinenghi who came from fifth place at halfway to take second with a fastest second 50 of 31.41 seconds. Peaty clinched bronze in 59.19 seconds as he returned to the world long-course podium after a two-year absence.

Fink now has a medal of each color at the last three worlds, winning 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; 27.08/32.02: Martinenghi; 27.53/31.41: Peaty
