Adam Peaty has praised the new "brave" race of swimmers in the Great Britain team.

Peaty returned to the pool on Thursday night to claim his fourth European Championship medal, but it has been the appearance of people like Freya Anderson that has made people speak in Glasgow.

The 17-year-old won the bronze medal in the final race of the event, the combined relay of 4×100 meters, to bring her own personal account to four and along with other teenagers like Holly Hibbott and Imogen Clark, who also won medals in the event. The last night in Tollcross, they have shown that the future is strong for British swimming.

"They have been brave," Peaty said. "And in four years maybe they'll be here with four gold medals too."

"They are only 17/18 and that shows that we are not just a & Z; Generation Z & # 39 ;, we have the reserve coming to Tokyo and beyond, I hope to bring a good team to Tokyo with the majors as well."

A fourth medal of the championships completed a dominant week for Peaty, who by his own admission fell short of his high standards at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year.

He promised to take a different approach to his Glasgow careers and was rewarded when the 4x100m men's relay team – made up of Peaty, Nicholas Pyle, Duncan Scott and James Guy – set a new championship record to complete his perfect European record.

"A quad quad, 12th long-haul European gold in four years," he said. "It has been very successful for the GB team, we are looking strong at this time.

Peaty had tried to minimize the event in the buildup, admitting that he was not as high on his list of priorities as other big meetings, but he says the mindset changed quickly.

He said: & # 39; I came here thinking & # 39; it's not the Olympics, it's not a World Championship, I really do not care, but when I'm here, I say Let's have it! & # 39; & # 39;

Great Britain finished the swim with a total of 24 medals, nine of which were gold, leaving them in second place after Russia with 26 in the group.

In addition to the men's relay team, Clark, Litchfield, Guy and Hibbott won two silver medals and two bronze medals, respectively, before the women's relay team added bronze.

It all started on Thursday night by Ben Proud, who won a comfortable victory in the 50m freestyle final.

However, he was not satisfied after not being able to build in the record time of the championship established in the semifinal.

"Seeing the competition, it was good enough to put my hand on the wall first, but for future reference, I can not be doing that in future championships," he said.

"I'm very happy with 21.11 last night, and I think 21.3 is fast enough to win gold, but when I have to go against the rest of the world, it will not be fast enough. It's a good practice and something to tackle in the future ".
