Youth Olympian Gergely Demeter (HUN) has got out of the blocks quickly in group A, finishing at the top of his group after the fencing with an impressive 21 victories and only 6 defeats. This was 1 victory ahead of Valentin Prades (FRA) and Cristiano Montico (ITA). The Youth Olympic Champion Dae Beom Kim (KOR) struggled and is back in 16th place so has some work to do to sneak into the top 12.
As expected, swimming world record holder Jamie Cooke (GBR) won the swimming in group B in a time of 1:57.47, which was 3 seconds ahead of Mateusz Gralewsky. Group C’s swim heat was not so fast as Maksim Kustov (RUS) won it is a time of 2:01.35 just ahead of Leandro Silva (ARG).
