October 31, 2017

Bermuda’s Flora Duffy won her fourth consecutive XTERRA World Championship title, racing to victory in Maui on Sunday [Oct 29] to become the first ever elite triathlete to win four XTERRA World Titles in a row.

The off-road triathlon consists of a 1.5-kilometer [1-mile] swim, a 32-kilometer [20-mile] mountain bike that climbs 3,500 feet up and down the West Maui Mountains, and a 10.5-kilometer [6.5-mile] trail run that traverses forest trails and beach sand.

Duffy not only led the women in the swim portion, she was reported to be “in the mix of the men’s lead group” during that segment.

Video highlights of the race:

She then opened up over a 4-minute lead on the bike portion, and during the run portion she held her lead, at one point increasing it to over 6 minutes.

In addition to retaining her XTERRA World Title, she is also the reigning ITU World Champion, with the Bermudian athlete making outstanding showings across both federations, cementing her world class status.
