Fourth World Cup for Docherty
NZ Olympic silver medallist Bevan Docherty has won his fourth International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Cup at Edmonton, Canada. Docherty’s win is the culmination of seven straight top-eight finishes and boosts him to second place on the World Cup rankings halfway through the ITU series. “I don’t have the sort of young drive anymore, the young sort of hunger,” said Docherty, 30, in the Taipei Times. “Now I just sort of race with the brain a bit more and I think I race a lot smarter. And on a day like this, it certainly paid off.” NZ athletes enjoyed great success in the men’s event at Edmonton, with four competitors finishing in the top ten. Kris Gemmel finished fourth while Terrenzo Bozzone and Shane Reed came sixth and ninth respectively.
