Triathlon: Hauss builds victory on final run
Monday 23 April 2012
David Hauss of France claimed his first World Cup victory yesterday when he took the ITU Ishigaki title, erasing a 50-second deficit after the bike ride to win this Olympic qualifier in 1hr 50min 6sec.
Italy's Davide Uccellari finished second, four seconds behind, while Gonzalo Raul Tellechea of Argentina took third in 1:50:19.
"After the bike, I thought it would be really hard for me," Hauss said of his run. "But I was in good shape and flying, so after two laps I controlled the race, I really enjoyed the last lap."
In the women's race, Canada's Kathy Tremblay won her first World Cup title in 2:05:38. Aileen Morrison of Ireland finished second, 20 seconds behind Tremblay, while Sarah-Anne Brault, also of Canada, was third in 2:06:03.
The points from the Ishigaki mean Canada has a good chance to send two women to London.
