Joey Mantia ensured the host U.S. finished with a medal at the world single distances championships. Ireen Wüst, Kjeld Nuis and Jorrit Bergsma ensured the Netherlands finished atop the medal standings.
Mantia joined Shani Davis as the only U.S. men to earn individual medals at three different editions of the championships, taking bronze in the 1500m. Mantia won the mass start at the last two worlds in 2017 and 2019 (and finished fifth on Sunday, after the 1500m bronze).
Mantia clocked a personal best 1:42.16 in the fifth of 12 pairs of the 1500m.
