The WTCS Grand Final in Pontevedra on Saturday delivered high drama and an epic finish as Dorian Coninx claimed world title glory in the most unlikely of finishes.

The Frenchman came out on top both in the race in Spain and the season standings after pipping Germany’s Tim Hellwig and compatriot Pierre Le Corre in an epic blanket finish.

Meanwhile it was agony again for Britain’s Alex Yee, who had been hoping it would be third time lucky in his world title bid after two near misses. He finished down the field in 30th after exiting the water well off the pace and being unable to recover.

Yee’s main title coming into the race – Hayden Wilde of New Zealand – also had a big deficit to overcome after the swim and that would be compounded by a 15-second penalty he then picked up. He would recover somewhat to finish 10th on the day.

Portugal’s Vasco Vilaca as the third of the leading title contenders heading into Saturday, and he came home in 15th place as Coninx claimed a highly unlikely world title in dramatic circumstances.
