Highlight Of Career

Taupo-born triathlete Bevan Docherty, 34, has beaten seven-time Tour de France winner American Lance Armstrong to take the Panama half ironman title. Olympic silver-medalist Docherty beat Armstrong by 31 seconds after overtaking him on the running leg of event, which was raced in searing heat. “It’s great that I could hold one up for the other triathletes and show that it’s certainly not a sport that you can just walk into and dominate straight away,” Docherty told the New Zealand Herald. “It’s quite an honour to see someone you admire standing in second place below you on the podium. It’s a highlight of my career.”
