Lance Armstrong exhibits and wins a triathlon in San Diego

Lance Armstrong (USA) has taken victory in the Superfrog Coronado Island Triathlon in San Diego (California) and has set a new record with 3:49. Despite the persecution by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) and his 41 years, Armstrong exhibited himself over the middle distance of this test that had completed 34 editions.

Armstrong started the swim stage (1,9km) a couple of minutes behind the leaders to close the gap on the bike (90km), although he did not finish passing Australian Leon Griffin until the run, a half marathon of 20,9 kilometers.

The seven-time winner of the Tour de France has also competed in a Speedo swimsuit, typical of the 80s. "In honor of my sporting roots, I have decided to show the Speedo throughout the race," he confessed on his Twitter before leaving.

His balance was great. "A great time. Thanks to everyone who came out and as always, huge thanks to all the volunteers," he highlighted.
