What a finish! After a disastrous start yesterday, Vincent Luis roared back and showed his class with a display that will go down in triathlon history!
On the final day of the 2018/19 series, the men’s field took on The Enduro. The race consisted of SWIM-BIKE-RUN-SWIM-BIKE-RUN-SWIM-BIKE-RUN with no break.
Today’s events decided the final standings for the weekend and subsequently the final standings in the 2018/19 series.
Luis had work to do if he wanted to take home the Championship Title as he’d scored only one point in Saturday’s race. Henri Schoeman knew he had a chance to take the fight to Luis and in doing so claim the series title. Jonny Brownlee was looking to back up yesterday’s victory and take the weekend’s spoils. It was all to play for in Singapore!
What followed was a tense and attritional race with all of the top contenders leaving everything on course, but in the end, it was Luis who held firm to win the day. Brownlee pushed him hard and took a well-earned second place with Schoeman coming home a close third to round off the podium.
These results meant Brownlee took the top step for Super League Singapore, but the overall title went to Luis with Schoeman in second and Brownlee in third.

Luis was overjoyed to seal his victory for the 2018/19 series.
“I still can’t believe it you know, I came here pretty confident with my training and the lead I had. This weekend shows anything can happen – that is the sport, and I think that is why we love it.”
