Summary

The men’s race came down to a New Zealand competition between Hamish Carter and Bevan Docherty. They were two of the top cyclists in the race and used those skills to finish 1st (Carter) and 4th (Docherty) in the bike leg. Carter started the run in the lead, with Docherty three seconds back in 4th place. They were also among the best runners in the field. Although America’s Hunter Kemper posted the best 10 km run time, Carter and Docherty finished 4th and 5th, respectively, in that discipline. Docherty was never quite able to close the gap on Carter throughout the race, and Carter won the gold medal with eight seconds to spare.
