London Roar's Peaty was pushed the whole way by Ilya Shymanovich, with the lead switching back-and-forth before the Olympic champion pulled clear in the final strokes.

"It feels like every race is a world championship or an Olympic final, it's incredible," said London Roar general manager Rob Woodhouse.

Seeing all these world records is just amazing.
