It was to be a historic day for triathlon as the debut 2018 MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda saw Norway become the first team in the history of WTS racing to take all three places on the men’s podium. In only the third WTS elite race of his career, Casper Stornes (NOR) dominated the field on route to gold, compatriots Kristian Blummenfelt and Gustav Iden powering through to collect silver and bronze respectively and complete the clean sweep.
Asked if he believed he could finish with the gold, Stornes replied honestly; “Not when I was in the big group, but when I saw that they just let me go (on the bike) I saw I had a chance, so I just took it. I won, so I am very happy! I was thinking many times that maybe I should slow down and inhale a little bit, but I just pushed on and got more time.”
