After finishing ninth in 2020 and scoring the bronze a year ago, Sunday afternoon in the Czech hills saw Hungary’s Csongor Lehmann finally find his golden moment at the 2022 World Triathlon Cup Karlovy Vary, coming at the climax of a gripping three-way tussle for the title. The former Junior and U23 World Champion was shoulder-to-shoulder with Matthew McElroy (USA) and Lasse Luhrs (GER) at the halfway point of the final lap, but made a bold move on the final hill to pull clear and was able to hang on all the way to the line, McElroy with silver and a second successive World Cup podium, Luhrs home in third.
