Veteran cyclist Armstrong makes spectacular comeback

Wellington, Mon, 13 Feb 2012 ANI

Wellington, Feb 13(ANI): Tour de France legend Lance Armstrong has made an astonishing return to professional cycling, as he finished second to New Zealand's former Olympic gold medallist Bevan Docherty in the Panama.


Armstrong is a cancer survivor and retired from professional cycling last year, reports.


He was in the news last week when Federal prosecutors in the US closed an investigation of him following allegations of drug use made by his old teammate, drug cheat Floyd Landis.


Armstrong once again made the news headlines, but this time for good reasons as he came second in the 1.9 km swim, 90km cycle, and 21.1km run triathlon in Panama City.


He was elated after coming second and said: "It's great to be back."


He was left behind by Docherty (3hr 50min 13sec) in the final leg of the race, finishing in 3hr 50min 55sec and ahead of Australian athlete Richie Cunningham (3hr 52min 59sec). (ANI)
