“My swim was average and I really struggled early in the fencing, the humidity was really affecting me. I lost nine of my first ten bouts in the fencing but then I found my rhythm and somehow finished sixth so I was pleased. I really enjoy the new format of the combined event with four laps; it suits me, I consider myself a good runner. My aim is now at top six finish”, said the Frenchman.
Nicholas Woodbridge of Great Britain, winner in the swimming event, Latvia’s Denis Cerkovskis, Hungary’s Robert Kazka and Austria’s Thomas Daniel all finished level on points with Prades and Frolov.
Patrick Dogue was the quickest round the combined event course with a time of 12:05:50 and finished fifteenth overall to qualify for the Final on Saturday.
