Rostyslav Pevtsov won silver on the World Cup
The third World Cup of the season proved to be a test of surviving the masses and Ryan Fisher (AUS) showcased that he was the elite man to do it. The 2015 Chengdu ITU World Cup saw three disciplines of athletes banning together and forming gigantic packs that carried almost throughout the entire race.
Leaving it all up to a sprint finish, Fisher was able to break away at the very end to cross the finish line at 1:46:07 and claim his first gold medal since he won the 2013 Ishigaki ITU World Cup in 2013. Rostyslav Pevtsov (AZE) walked away with the silver medal, while Kevin Mcdowell (USA) won the bronze on a grueling day.
Pevstov was delighted with his podium, the second of his career. «I give that everything today, I have nothing else, the others were too good in the finish but I am delighted, this is a very good race for me and I am very happy».
