Mat Fraser Assessed 60-Second Penalty on Ruck

Mat Fraser doesn’t let many points escape him on the leaderboard.

At the final turn of Ruck, one sand bag fell out of his pack. He did not notice and completed the race without the prescribed load and finished in 24:50.09. After reviewing footage, Fraser was given a 60-penalty. His time on Ruck stands at 25:50.09.

After winning the first two events on Day 1, Fraser finished 17th and 20th in Events 3 and 4. Fraser (311 pts.) is still in his white leader jersey, but Noah Ohlsen (309 pts.) and James Newbury (308 pts.) are close behind.
