Crociani was overtaken on the second leg by men’s individual champion Dylan McCullough of New Zealand for Oceania 1. Crociani was 20 seconds down when he handed over to Weber. But the Swiss athlete clawed all that time back and when she handed over Portugal’s Montez, Europe 1 and Oceania 1 were neck and neck.
