MTI reports that Lehmann Ksungauer won a gold medal at the U-23 World Triathlon Championships in Edmonton on Saturday.
Super Triathlon won the Junior World Cup in 2018, and one year later, as a first-year under-23 starter, he finished second in the older age group.
At the Canadian World Championships, he completed the race in 1 hour 46 minutes 47 seconds, during which he swam 1,500 metres, cycled 40 kilometres, and finished with the youngster from Tiszaújváros who ran 10 kilometres.
In the race the leads were close together until the first lap of the race and then started to fall apart. In the end, a three-man lead was formed, with Germany’s Tim Hellwig and Australia’s Matthew Hauser battling for the gold with Lehmann Ksungauer, but in the run he overcame his opponents with a big hairpin.
Ksongor Lehmann told the FIA website that he put a lot of pressure on himself throughout the race and that although the last kilometer of the race was already very tough, he was very eager to win. He added that he did not know how many opponents following him were from him, he just wanted to go beyond his limits and tried not to look back.
Zsombor Dévay also participated in the World U-23 Championship. As a freshman, he did a great job on the field, placing his business card in a 13th place finish that separated him from 10th place by just eight seconds.
