Summary

There was no clear favorite in the men’s race. The swim leg was won by Australia’s Craig Walton, but he was not considered a threat for the championship because of weak cycling and running skills. In the bike leg, Conrad Stoltz of South Africa and Olivier Marceau of France pulled away and finished together, with almost a full minute lead on the pack. Canada’s Simon Whitfield was in the middle of the group, having finished the swim in 28th place, and started the run in 24th. But he was the best runner in the field, and won that leg, catching the leaders and eventually caught the leader, Stephan Vuckovic (GER), less than 300 metres from the line, and pulled away to a comfortable win. The five top runners finished in that order overall as well. Bike leader Olivier Marceau finished 20th in the running and held on for 7th place.
