三屆奧運會冠軍亞當-皮蒂有望傷愈復出,在7月伯明翰舉行的英聯邦運動會上捍衛他的100米蛙泳冠軍。

"我現在有90%的把握,"他告訴BBC電台5號現場,關於伯明翰的復出。

"我相當有信心,在我的訓練和我周圍的團隊的幫助下,我們將在那裡,能夠打一場漂亮的仗。"

皮蒂說,在桑德韋爾水上運動中心的主場觀眾面前比賽的前景正刺激着他的康復。

"我在離伯明翰45-50分鐘車程的地方長大,"他補充說。

"我是一個中部地區的人--我在東中部地區出生,也可能會在那裡死去。在那個賽場上比賽,沒有比這更接近家鄉的了。

"一想到這一點,我就渾身起雞皮疙瘩"。

皮蒂在過去三屆世錦賽上都完成了50米-100米蛙泳的比賽,但他在蘭薩羅特島的基地看着美國人尼克-芬克和意大利人尼科洛-馬丁寧吉奪得這些冠軍。

然而,Peaty說,強制停賽再次確認了他的優先事項,並激發了他對比賽的渴望。

"他補充說:"這次斷腳是發生在我身上最好的事情之一。

"它讓我放慢了腳步,提醒我什麼是重要的,那就是家庭和你身邊的支持。但它給了我這種動力,我不希望其他人擁有這些頭銜。

"我從心底里相信,世界紀錄可以再次被打破,我還沒有結束。"

Three-time Olympic champion Adam Peaty expects to return from injury to defend his 100m breaststroke title at July's Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

"I am 90% sure now," he told BBC Radio 5 Live about a Birmingham comeback.

"I am quite confident, with my training and team around me, that we will be there and able to put up a good fight."

Peaty said the prospect of racing in front of a home crowd at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre is spurring him on in his recovery.

"I grew up 45-50 minutes away from Birmingham," he added.

"I am a Midlands man - I was born and will probably die in the East Mids. To race in that arena, it doesn't get much closer to home than that.

"It gives me goose bumps thinking about it."

Peaty has done the 50m-100m breaststroke double at each of the last three World Championships, but has watched from his base in Lanzarote as American Nic Finke and Italian Nicolo Martinenghi have taken on those titles.

However, Peaty says the enforced lay-off have reaffirmed his priorities and fuelled his appetite for competition.

"This broken foot is one of the best things that has happened to me," he added.

"It has slowed me down, reminded me what is important, which is family and the support around you. But it has given me that drive, I don't want anyone else to have those titles.

"I believe in the bottom of my heart that world records can be broken again and I am not finished yet."
