Bevan Docherty of New Zealand Wins Opening Round of Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series in Sydney

By Karl Hayes

Bevan Docherty of New Zealand put in a fast 10km run to take out the first round of the 2010 Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series in Sydney.

Docherty was always in in touch with the leaders throughout the race and whilst he did not do the fastest run of the day he managed to get all three stages right.

Docherty did not have it all his own way with Alexander Brukhankov, of Russia,  posting the fastest run of the day and finshing a very close 5 seconds behind him. Brukhankov was getting close to taking the lead but just ran out of race distance in the end.

Third place David Hauus from France also put in a fast run leg to take the bronze.

An earlier crash at the end of the bike leg put Chris Foster of the USA out of medal contention.

In an interview with Trizone on Friday at the ITU press conference, Jan Frodeno predicted that Bevan Docherty will be one of the athletes to watch and he was right on the money.
