The message from CARICOM CARICOM Secretary-General, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque said,  “On behalf of the Caribbean Community [CARICOM] I offer heartiest congratulations to Ms. Flora Duffy of Bermuda on her spectacular achievement of winning a gold medal in the Triathlon at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

“Ms. Duffy’s inspirational victory in that arduous event is yet another example of Caribbean excellence and further evidence of the ability of small states like ours to compete and be successful in the global arena.”

While Bermuda is, as many point out, technically not part of the Caribbean, we do compete in Caribbean regional events – such as Carifta and CAC Games – and Ms Duffy and Bermuda have received many plaudits from the Caribbean region for her historic win.
