New Zealand's Bevan Docherty has won the latest World Cup triathlon event in Edmonton in Canada, beating a field which included Canada's Olympic gold medallist Simon Whitfield.

Docherty, the bronze medallist in Beijing three years ago, was sixth heading into the final leg but a strong 10km run helped him to his second title in Edmonton, having won the same event four years ago.
