The New Zealand triathlete Hayden Wilde believes he’ll be better off with another year under his belt before the Tokyo Olympics.

The 22 year old appeared set to be named in the New Zealand team before the International Olympic Committee and Tokyo organizers decided to postpone the Games until 2021.

Wilde finished third in the Tokyo test event last year and since then his world ranking has risen to number 11.

“Everyone wants to race this year obviously, it would have been just 12 weeks away but I’m happy that they’ve made the right decision for everyone’s health and I look forward to putting my head down for another year and trying to get selected for New Zealand, said Wilde.”
