BERLIN (AP) — Adam Peaty of Britain has set a world record in the 50-meter breaststroke, finishing in 26.62 seconds in a semifinal heat at the European Swimming Championship on Friday.

Peaty appeared amazed at the end and needed a few moments to realize that he had set a new mark.

The old record of 26.67 seconds belonged to Cameron van der Burgh of South Africa, set on July 29, 2009, in Rome.
