For the second time in his young career, Tate Haugan is a world champion triathlete. This time, it's the 2018 Junior Men's Fyn ITU Cross Triathlon World Championship he won.
Haugan, 18, won the race the morning of July 10, in Fyn, Denmark, with a time of one hour, seven minutes and 32 seconds. Haugan beat out Denmark's Oscar Gladney Rundqvist by 36 seconds.
Haugan built up a sizeable lead after the swim and the bike portion, although Denmark's Gladney Rundqvist was able to make up 36 seconds on Haugan in the run.
In all, 22 juniors competed in the race. Haugan was the only one from Canada.
