Who will be the kings and queens of the pool in Tokyo?

GB’s Adam Peaty took gold in the 100m breaststroke in Rio and has dominated the event since. Will he be on the top of the podium again?

USA took 33 medals in the pool last time out and will be the nation to beat again, though there is no Ryan Lochte or Michael Phelps this time around.

Katie Ledecky, winner of five Olympic gold medals already, could bring even more home.
