Individual Men’s Ski Erg Recap

Heat one for the men was the Samuel Kwant welcome party. He was the first athlete to clear the ski erg. He cleaned the sandbag and went unbroken through the first round of squats.

Douglas was the closest athlete to Kwant by the time the former Games runner-up returned to the ski erg, but Kwant gave no ground. He had an eight-rep lead in the final set of squats and scored the heat win with a time of 4:34.75.

Olenkowicz, Farlow, Shorunke, and Hopper were in the lead at the beginning of heat two, showing the advantage of being among the bigger athletes on the floor. Olenkowicz was the speediest on the first round of squats and reached the second ski erg first with Moorad in tow.

Olenkowicz furthered his lead through the second ski erg, holding a five-rep gap to cross the finish line 20 seconds behind Kwant’s time.

In heat three, the mad dash out of the gate on the ski erg saw Mertens take an early lead. Mertens’ prowess in the squat allowed him to speed through the clean and clear his way down the course. He never let up and scored the time to beat at a hair over four and a half minutes.

Athletes in heat four had the chance to strategize their run to challenge Mertens’ top time. There was little separation among the pack in the opening ski erg.

The entire heat marched to the sandbags together. Cournoyer and Khrennikov had the lead pace by approximately a rep but remained tight to the second ski erg.

Khrennikov was the first to the final round of squats with Adler on his tail. Mertens’ time was in no danger of being eclipsed. Smith overtook Khrennikov in the final moments to take the heat win by two seconds.

Finishing Day Four

The last event on the second day of competition for the Individuals is “Helena,” a variation of a benchmark workout. We’ll see if Medeiros can continue to mount his comeback following the worst start to any Games in his career as Khrennikov tries to maintain his overall lead.
