In the test held today in Yokohama, Alex Yee has got a Chrono of 29: 58 to complete the 10 km of running on foot of which the test was composed. In terms of qualification, the British team has achieved fifth position staying just 25 seconds away from the podium.
Your times at WTS Yokohama
- Swimming: 18: 27 (1 rhythm: 14 the 100 meters)
- Biking: 54: 12 (mean of 44,28 km / h)
- Race on foot: 29: 58 (2 rhythm: 59 min / km)
We could already see Yee in the Cape Town World Cup last February, where he was second in the opening round of the World Series in Abu Dhabi, in a duel of "you to you" with Mario Mola, winner of the test.
Its weak point swimming.
The weak point of Alex is the swimming, today in the Yokohama test he has come out almost 1 minute from the head of the race, which has marked the competition. If it had been in the group of sure head that it would have been fighting for the victory, with many possibilities of obtaining it seen its time of race.
Although he has achieved an average rhythm of 1: 14 in swimming, which is not bad, it has not been enough since the first to get out of the water today in Yokohama, Henri Schoeman , has invested a time of 17: 39, (at an average rate of 1: 11 every 100 meters). Lee has only been 3 seconds slower but they are worth a podium in a test like today's world series.
The Brit is young and we will surely see him improve in swimming.
He will be in Leeds with the Brownlee brothers
His next participation will be in the WEDs of Leed (United Kingdom) where the Brownlee brothers will also be.
