Video: Flora Duffy Reflects On Gold Medal Win

April 7, 2018 | 4 Comments

Bermuda’s Flora Duffy claimed the first gold medal of the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia after racing to victory in the women’s triathlon.

Duffy grabbed a Bermuda flag from the crowd as she approached the finish line where her winning time of 56.50 earned her Bermuda’s second-ever gold medal in Commonwealth Games, the first by a Bermudian woman, and the first Commonwealth medal for Bermuda in 20 years.

Race highlights and an interview with Duffy:

This is the latest major accomplishment for the triathlete, who has won multiple world championships as well as major international races all over the world including in Canada, Sweden, Netherlands, Japan, England, Mexico, Italy, Germany, South Africa, Bahamas, Australia, Philippines, United Kingdom, United States and more.

Her victory at these Games also gave our small island the distinction of leading the medal table for a while, as the event was the first one for the Commonwealth Games, so Duffy’s victory resulted in Bermuda being on top of the medal table for a few hours.

Duffy’s gold medal win was part of what has been a historic showing by Bermuda’s triathletes, as the island also made our first ever appearance in the team relay event, with Duffy, Erica Hawley, Tyler Butterfield and Tyler Smith racing to a 5th place finish in the team event,
