Lance Armstrong Finishes 2nd in Panama Half Ironman (Results)

7-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong finished second on Sunday in the Panama Half Ironman to New Zealand’s Bevan Docherty.

Docherty won with a time of 3:50:13 holding off Armstrong by 42 seconds as Lance finished in 3:50:55.

1 3:50:13 16 Bevan Docherty Santa Cruz CA NZL
2 3:50:55 0:42 24 Lance Armstron Austin TX USA
3 3:52:59 2:46 5 Richie Cunningh Boulder CO AUS
4 3:53:38 3:25 4 Rasmus Henning Tuineje DOM
5 3:54:44 4:31 12 Romain Guillaum Montmorot FRA
6 3:55:30 5:18 7 Jesse Thomas Springfield OR USA

9 4:00:53 10:40 9 Oscar Galindez Santos ARG
10 4:01:24 11:11 6 Bert Jammaer Boom BEL

Docherty, who overtook Armstrong in the latter portion of the run, claims Armstrong ignored him somewhat after finishing.

“I’m not sure what it was all about. I can only assume he was just disappointed to get beaten,” Docherty said.

Docherty said that later on that Armstrong did finally shake his hand and congratulate him.

“I did shake his hand a little bit later. He’s on a completely different level and planet to us guys [triathletes],” Docherty said. “It’s great to have him in the sport, he certainly adds something. It’s an eye-opener to see how he gets mobbed and the chaos around him.”

Which of the three legs did Armstrong struggle the most? You’ll never guess it…

Docherty stated, “I thought Lance would absolutely cream us on the bike, but he was probably in a similar position to me where he wasn’t too sure how to pace himself,” he said. “He certainly looked like he was holding back and that was probably why he ran so well off the bike.”

Either way, Armstrong was impressive on Sunday and perhaps the greatest endurance athlete of our generation or any generation.

Armstrong will keep working at it until he can dominate the triathlon and Ironman.

Pippa Middleton Rocks Highland Cross 50 Mile Duathlon

Royal little-sis Pippa Middleton competed in the 2011 Highland Cross 50 Mile Duathlon in the Scottish Highlands last weekend.

She completed the 20-mile run and 30-mile bike ride in 5:07:58.

Pips finished 15th out of 116 women who competed in the event.

Middleton competed in the BE Blenheim Triathlon Relay earlier this month where she did the running leg. Pippa has also completed a solo triathlon and several running races of varying distances.

Pippa Middleton Triathlon – GE Blenheim Triathlon

Pippa Middleton Finishes GE Blenheim Triathlon (Photo)

Royal sister-in-law Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of Kate ‘Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’ Middleton’s, finished the GE Blenheim Triathlon in Woodstock, England earlier today.  She was part of a triathlon relay team. Pippa did the 5K run at the end of the triathlon according to the Mirror.

Captured in the warm sun Pippa finished the 5km run leg in a respectable 25:30. Her team, called SJP, finished the full triathlon – a gruelling 750m swim, 20km bike ride and then 5km run – in 1:27:32.

The English socialite/party planner/partier definitely shows the USA version, Paris Hilton, that you can still be fit, athletic, and inspire a nation even when you put the Patrón down.  The closest Hilton or Kim Kardashian come to being athletic is in their choice of professional athletes they date.

This was NOT Pippa’s first triathlon.  She has completed one before.  Sporty-Royal Spice finished the Blenheim full triathlon in 2009 with a time of 1:26:01 according to official race results.
