They tried, but the cycling force behind them, led by the Norwegian trio of Blummenfelt, Iden, and Stornes in particular, was too much to keep at bay, and a very large lead pack emerged, so the race would come down to the final sprint.
S. Vincent Olympic Games Tokyo 2020
Vincent has been dominating in all short-course racing formats in recent years, so his disappointing showing at Odaiba Marine Park was especially disappointing given his expected dominance in the 2020 season.
That wasn’t good enough for Luis. Considering his dismal showing in Tokyo, the 2019 and 2020 World Champion will have to answer questions about whether or not he was at his physical prime.
I gave it all I had today,” he said on Instagram. “I made it to the end, but it wasn’t enough.
Sports can be challenging at times, but I’m determined to compete. I’d want to congratulate all the athletes, but especially the top three finishers.
Possible Bids in a Mixed-Relay Format are Pending.
As a result, Luis will be focusing on Saturday’s debut Mixed Relay event, in which he and his French colleagues are expected to once again be among the favourites.
Together with Cassandre Beaugrand, Leonie Periault, and either Dorian Coninx or Léo Bergere, Luis will be a part of a formidable squad in the 2019 ITU Mixed Relay World Championships.
Luis and his countrymen will be hoping that he can recapture the form that won them medals in the past, but they’ll have stiff competition from the likes of Great Britain and the United States.
