Peter John Stevens Is the Vice-World Champion in the 50 Metres Breaststroke

Peter John Stevens is the vice-world champion in the 50 metres breaststroke. In the finals of the FINA World Short Course Swimming Championship in Windsor (Canada), only the South African athlete Cameron van der Burgh managed to beat the Slovenian athlete.

A 21-year-old swimmer from the Triglav Kranjska Club won a silver medal, setting a national record of 25.85 seconds. He fell behind the world record-breaker South African Cameron van der Burgh by 0.21 second only. The Brazilian Felipe Lima won bronze with a score of 25.98 seconds.

He Is Destined to Take Second Places

“This year I have been obviously destined to occupy second places. I was already the second in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Championship (NCAA), then at the European Championships in London, and now here at the World Championships in Windsor,” Peter John Stevens, who became the youngest finalist of the championship, has summed up the season.
