September 20, 2017 | 0 Comments

Bermudian Flora Duffy’s recent victory in Rotterdam earned her the WTS World Championships, with the triathlete claiming the ITU World Championship title for the second year in a row.

A Triathlon.org story said, “In what looked like a near perfect race outcome that suited her strengths, Flora Duffy [BER] had a dominating performance at the 2017 ITU World Triathlon Rotterdam to claim victory and reclaim her ITU World Championship title for the second year in a row.”

Highlights of the race and Duffy’s victory:

“Making a name for herself as one of the most consistent swim, bike and run athletes, Duffy’s Grand Final gold ended a season that saw her claim six WTS races in the year, that all aided in her repeat world honour.”

Duffy said of her win, “I am pretty reluctant to ever say you can have a perfect race, but I would say today went just how I wanted it to. I had a great swim and set myself up perfectly for the bike. I tried to play it safe on the bike because there is so much on the line and then on the run I felt pretty strong, so I wanted to go for it.

“Yeah, it was a great day. I just try to make it a swim, bike and run. Not a swim, get through the bike and then onto the run. So maybe it is forcing everyone to be really good at all three, but that is how I want to race a triathlon, I just love to race.”
