Britain's Adam Peaty shattered his own 50 metres breaststroke world record on Tuesday at the World Swimming Championships in Budapest, capital city of Hungary.

The 22-year-old from Uttoxeter once again destroyed his competition finishing nearly half a second ahead in a time of 25.99 - just four one hundredths outside his own world record - as Peaty defends his double World title from two years ago in Kazan - the first man to do so in the event.

This is only the second time anybody has finished this event in under 26 seconds. Britain's team of Georgia Davies, Adam Peaty, James Guy and Siobhan-Marie O'Connor came fifth with a time of 3:41.56.

"I didn't even think about world records". He went even faster during the evening semifinals, touching in 25.95.

Indiana's construction industry, however, lost 900 jobs last month, during the traditional height of the construction season. Five industry sectors reported job declines over the month, down a total of 22,900 jobs.

Li Bingjie and Ai Yanan, two teenage swimmers born in 2002, both qualified for women's 200m freestyle semi-finals, while Li Zhuhao and Wang Zhou crashed out from the heats in men's 200m butterfly.

"Then after this morning people were saying Project 25 and I said "Yes, go on then".

" I just dived in, I felt good and I wasn't that far behind after the start which is a bonus for me. Mel [Marshall, his coach] and me worked very, very hard and the rest is history". Just lining it all up beforehand and making sure I can get everywhere I need to go pretty quickly.

The mixed medley will be added to the Olympic programme at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 and Peaty is convinced Britain will be among the front-runners.

Poland's senate approves contentious court bill
A senior aide to Duda, Krzysztof Szczerski, said Tusk should instead focus on explaining Poland's stance in Brussels. European Union leaders have criticized the bill for impairing judicial independence and threatening the rule of law.

Peaty had targeted his own world record of 57.13, set when he won the Olympic title past year in Rio de Janeiro, but came up short in his bid.

The oldest in the field at 28, Pellegrini stormed back from fourth at the final turn to take gold ahead of Katie Ledecky of America and Australia's Olympic bronze medallist Emma McKeon, who had led until the 150m mark.

Now sporting a massive lion tattoo on his left arm, Peaty made the turn under his world-record pace from Rio but faded a bit on the return lap to touch in 57.47.

Over the shorter distance, Peaty roared out of the blocks in Tuesday morning's heats to clock 26.10sec and smash his own world record.

Joe Girardi not surprised Bartolo Colon still pitching at 44
Colon (2-9) allowed eight hits and four runs with no walks and three strikeouts in four innings against the Yankees. And the thing I was always impressed with, from afar and then being on his team, the command of his fastball.
