Winning Ways in Edmonton

Taupo double Olympic medalist Bevan Docherty has won gold at the Edmonton ITU Triathlon World Cup. “This course seems to treat me well. I enjoy racing here,” Docherty said. “But the reality is I am starting to hit good shape and I’m just happy with how things are going.” A total of 76 men began the race with a 2-lap wetsuit swim in the Hawrelak Park lake. Docherty surged ahead as the pack neared the finish chute to secure his fifth career World Cup title. “Four weeks out from our selection race which is in London,” he said. “It is just reassuring to know that all the training that I’ve been doing is starting to pay off.”
