But after serving a 15 second penalty, McCormack started to reel in those ahead of him. While Llanos had rocketed to the lead in the first lap of the run, overtaking Denmark’s Emil Dalgaard to do so, he couldn’t hold off a charging McCormack. The Australian hit the front at the start of the third lap of four, and surged ahead to claim his first ITU Long Distance world title.
