Adam Peaty Wants to Prioritise His Mental Health

Adam Peaty following his victories announced that he would take a month-long break from the pool. He wants to prioritise his mental health.

He mentioned via socials on Monday: “I’m taking a break because I’ve been going extremely hard for as long as I can remember. I’ve averaged two weeks off a year for the last seven years.”

Morgan Pierce left his comment on this situation:

“I love Peaty and he’s a great champion but we do need some perspective about sporting pressure. As an ENT (ears, nose and throat) doctor in LA once told me during a round of golf when I said he had a big pressure putt: ‘Real pressure is performing emergency tracheotomies on babies.”

Peaty is supported by Gary Lineker:

“I doubt a single sportsperson would ever compare their job to that of a surgeon operating on babies. That doesn’t mean that sportspeople can’t also suffer from depression, anxiety or struggle to handle pressure occasionally, and all done whilst the world watches on.”
