The ride off for gold was a copy of the Commonwealth Games final where he also came up against top qualifier Jack Bobridge. It was the same tactics for the slightly built Australian, who used his speed to open a telling gap of two seconds within the first kilometre. Bobridge clocked 4:21.141 to claim the title with Jesse Sergent two and a half seconds back taking the Silver medal.
