No Fear For Hunted Swimming World Champ

Team GB just enjoyed their best ever swimming world championship medal haul.

Starman Adam Peaty broke a world record and won three Golds.

Homeland media coverage is huge.

Especially following the revelation from his proud Mother. As a baby he was petrified of the water.

A clear lesson in focus. Then he went on to understand the difference between ascent and summit camp.

Dreadnought. The Race. The Hunt.

Compelling analogies for the sporty salesforce.
