The New Zealand triathlete Bevan Docherty has beaten sporting royalty today in winning the half ironman event in Panama, pushing 7 times Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong into second in the process.

The two time Olympic medallist was racing as a part of his build up to a busy season of triathlon world series racing, with this year's London Olympics the ultimate goal.
