ST. CROIX, U.S. Virgin Islands (AP) - Lance Armstrong dominated the cycling but finished third Sunday in a triathlon in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

This was Armstrong's latest effort in his return to the sport he competed in as a teenager before turning to cycling and winning the
Tour de France seven times.

Armstrong finished in 3 minutes, 37 seconds behind winner Andy Potts of the U.S. on Sunday. The 40-year-old Texan completed the 1.2-mile swim in 24:29. He surged in front on the 56-mile bike course, opening an almost two-minute gap over Potts. He faded in the closing 13.1-mile run

Potts won in 4 hours, 3 minutes, 31 seconds, with France's Stephane Poulat second. The top woman was Canada's Angela Naeth, who won in a course-record 4:28:12 despite peddling the last several miles of the bike leg with a flat tire.
