Despite his tragic incident in Malibu, Matt Hauser has decided to keep competing to try and win the Super League Triathlon Championship Series.
Hauser was in a commanding position heading into the third round of the Series and was at the top of the Leaderboard when he crashed his bike and was promptly disqualified.
One of the most unexpected events in Super League history, it appears like Hayden Wilde now has a clear path to the championship after coming through the field to win.
However, Hauser’s accident demonstrated that Super League is unpredictable, and despite being hurt, Hauser vowed to compete until the bitter end.
“This will lessen my chances of winning, but I’ll fight until the last end,”
Hauser, who was devastated, continued, “It’s an emotional rollercoaster. You are traveling, residing with everyone, and consuming everything triathlon. The traveling circus is what we refer to it as.
“Hayden gets credit. Going into tonight, he was always going to be the one to beat.
“I share your pride in Shachar (Sagiv). I’m thrilled for him to finish on the podium since he has been competing for fifth and sixth.
