Tokyo 2020: Adam Peaty frustrated by 50m Olympic omission

GB swimmer Adam Peaty

Rio gold medallist Adam Peaty says the International Olympic Committee (IOC) made a mistake by not including three new 50m sprint events for Tokyo 2020.

The IOC said last week that men’s 800m and women’s 1500m freestyle races would be added to the swimming programme.

Peaty, who won 100m breaststroke gold at last summer’s Olympics, was in favour of including 50m races in breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly.
