Mario Mola wins WTS Yokohama

Spaniard Mario Mola has earned his third WTS victory this season with a win at the 2016 ITU World Triathlon Yokohama in Japan. While silver went to Mexico’s Crisanto Grajales and bronze to Norway’s Kristian Blummenfelt, both of whom graced the WTS podium for the very first time.


Their medals also meant that Mexico and Norway were represented on a World Triathlon Series podium for the first time in history.

After surviving the masses during the swim and bike legs that saw more than 60 men enter the second transition together, Mola executed on his run right out of the T2 gate and was able to stride his way into his third WTS victory of the season.
