Alex Yee gets off the 30 minutes in the 10k of the WTSYokohama with the best time

After seeing the duel against Mola in Abu Dhabi today he has returned to compete in the WTS

The 21-year-old British boy Alex YeeHe has demonstrated his ability to shoot with the best also in the Olympic distance.

In the test held today in Yokohama, Alex Yee has got a Chrono of 29: 58 to complete the 10 km of running on which the test was composed. Regarding the classification, the British has achieved the fifth position staying just 25 seconds 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 “you to you” duel with Mario Mola, winner of the test.

His weak point swimming.

Alex's weak point is swimming, today in the Yokohama test he started almost 1 minute from the head of the race, which marked the competition. If he had been in the lead group he would surely have been fighting for victory, with a good chance of getting it given his race time.

Although he has achieved an average pace of 1:14 in swimming, which is not bad, it was not enough since he was 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 in the world series.

The Briton 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 WTS of Leed (United Kingdom) where the Brownlee brothers will also be.
