HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Lance Armstrong has a new challenge, and it involves competing in Hawaii. The seven-time Tour de France winner wants to compete in the Hawaii Ironman in Kona, in either 2011 or 2012. Armstrong says the year depends on if this year or next year will be his final Tour de France.

The 38-year-old says he wants to compete for fun, but thinks it's possible to finish in the top ten. He ran marathons, was a swimmer as a child, and a national-level triathlete in his late teens.

Armstrong was at the famous 1989 Hawaii Ironman, when Americans mark Allen and Dave Scott dueled to finish less than a minute with of each other.
