Photo Set #2: Flora Duffy Arrives Home

October 11, 2021 | 1 Comment

Crowds lined the streets today [Oct 11] to celebrate the arrival of Olympic gold medalist Flora Duffy, with people lining almost every part of the route from east to west, many waving flags and holding signs, with some rushing out to give Ms Duffy drinks and flowers.

The excitement was clearly obvious as the gold medalist made her way through the island, receiving a massive welcome from Bermudians the entire way, with some locals even lining the route via the water with boats seen at some points.

Ms Duffy’s medal win made Bermuda the smallest nation in the world to win a Summer Olympic gold medal, and to add context to that, the motorcade traveled across the island and was still shorter than the distance Flora Duffy swam/ran/cycled to win the gold medal in triathlon.

The motorcade went from the airport all the way to Warwick Academy, where Ms. Duffy went to school, and students erupted into chants of Flora, Flora, Flora when the gold medalist came through.

The motorcade then made its way to Hamilton, where Ms. Duffy was greeted at Cabinet by people including Bermuda’s first Olympic medalist Clarence Hill, who received a special thank you from Ms. Duffy saying that Mr. Hill showed that it was possible to be from a small island and win an Olympic medal.
