Triathlon: Kiwi men off the pace in London

New Zealand's men failed to flatter in the London round of the triathlon world series today.

The did not feature in the top 10, with Olympic multi-medallist Bevan Docherty the best of them, in 15th place.

That leaves Docherty having to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics next season.

Ryan Sissons came 22nd, Clark Ellice 36th, Kris Gemmell 40th, James Elvery 41st, Martin van Barneveld 48th and Tony Dodds 49th on a day when the New Zealanders failed to find a spark in their running legs.

The race was won by Briton Alistair Brownlee.
