Geens wins in Canada as WTS shocks continue

The most unpredictable men’s World Triathlon Series yet continued in Montreal as the little-fancied Belgian Jelle Geens out-sprinted world champion and training partner Mario Mola to take his first WTS victory.


The 26-year-old became the fifth different winner in five WTS races in 2019 and increased the chances of the world title coming down to a straight shootout in the Grand Final in Lausanne.

Spaniard Mola was thankful to return to the podium after three disappointing races, and home favourite Tyler Mislawchuk was delighted with third for his first WTS medal.
