Kwant finished second, first and second in the last three races and finished second with 85 points ahead of Madeiros.
- After the end of the event, Fraser commented When he stopped Kwant, he said, “I didn’t even have to look to the side. I saw him from the side of my sight. I almost tripped a couple of times the first time I turned around. My legs weren’t moving the way I imagined, and then it was like muscle failure in the last 20 or 30 meters. So that was all grit, determination, convey. ”
