2022 World Triathlon Championship Finals - Elite Men's Highlights

27 Nov, 2022
The race could hardly have been any tighter and the result certainly could not have been any better for Leo Bergere of France, as a first Series gold of his career sealed a remarkable first world title. Standing third in the Maurice Lacroix World Rankings heading into the Championship Finals, he knew that only a win could put him close to the trophy. Even then, both Alex Yee and Hayden Wilde had the title in reach.In fact, both had a hand on the trophy, with 400m to go Wilde was champion until Matthew Hauser passed him, Yee was champion until Geens pulled clear into third. But it was Bergere onto the front pack out of the water and driving the bike, even after the chasers closed in over the final laps, there was no catching him over the 10km run. USA’s Morgan Pearson was piecing together a phenomenal run of his own, scything through the field to hit second, Geens’ late surge to bronze preventing Yee from taking the title, Hauser’s fifth ahead of Wilde preventing the New Zealander doing the same.
