[Updated] The Minister of Community, Culture and Sports, R. Wayne Scott, today [Oct 27] congratulated World Champion Flora Duffy for her outstanding performance at the Xterra World Championships in Maui, Hawaii yesterday.

“What an incredible feat for Flora to achieve her childhood dream – Bermuda stands proud of her singular achievement. Our world class triathlete has once again put our island on the map,” Minister Scott said.

This crowns an amazing season for our champion and I can only wish her continued success.”

  1. In quote Shadow Sports Minister Michael Weeks:“This latest achievement by Ms. Duffy shows what can happen with talent, dedication and hard work. We congratulate Ms. Duffy for being a role model that young Bermudians can emulate. Well done!”
    I totally agree with you Shadow Minister M. Weeks. But this is a small example of what all Bermudians (young and old) can achieve if they were to follow the “rules”. This is an island, a very small island and to put it in sportsman’s terms, “it is nothing more than a hop, skip and a jump” and then, well, we all risk drowning :-(

    What rules Ray? What in the world are you saying boss?

    Nahki Wells and a large number of young males in this country are going exceedingly well playing football at the prep and college level in the US and of course Wells at the Championship level in the UK…

    I want to add that the very best athletes in the world compete in one sport …..Fact!
