Wright after greater returns


Share post:

Olympic hopeful Matthew Wright remains steadfast in his quest to collect enough points to qualify for next year’s Tokyo Olympics.

Last week, he competed in the Lima ITU Triathlon World Cup, which was staged along the same course as for this year’s Pan American Games.

However, he told Sunsport yesterday that he decided to drop out after challenges in the 5K event.

“I actually didn’t finish. I had a best swim for the season, coming out in the Top 15 feeling really good and I had a really strong ride, riding in the front and staying out of trouble and not using much effort. Then I got on to the 5K run. It was one big group of about 50 guys coming off the bike and I was running probably as fast I have run for the entire season, but, you know, the 5K is just not really my specialty, I guess,” he said.
