Armstrong competes in Maryland triathlon

 

Lance Armstrong competed in a triathlon Sunday after organizers dropped USA Triathlon sanctioning so he could take part in a race that raises money for cancer. Armstrong is banned from events that follow World Anti-Doping Agency rules after he chose not to fight doping charges. He finished the 70-mile swim, bike and run in 4 hours, 16 minutes at the Revolution3 Half-Full Triathlon in Ellicott City, Md. “This was a race that was built and designed to raise money for cancer. So it was an easy decision,” said Brock Yetso, president of the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. “We had two individuals who decided they did not want to race based on our decision and 300 who said they wanted to. So I think numbers speak for themselves.” – AP
