Lance Armstrong finished third in Red Licorice 2.4-mile Open Water Swim at Lake Travis in Austin (TX) on Sunday. It's a small race, but I think his time 49:12 is pretty amazing.
His swimming seems to be at the elite Ironman triathlete level already. It sure would be interesting to see him compete in an Ironman triathlon this year.
The winner James Bonney is one of Texas' top triathletes. The second swimmer coming in just before Lance is James Cotter, a Kiwi pro-triathlete living in Austin (won Steelhead 70.3 last year).
