Video: Highlights Of Xterra World Championship

December 9, 2021

Flora Duffy recently won her 6th Xterra World Championship — making her the only triathlete in the world to accomplish such a feat — and the video below offers highlights from the race.

When she won her Olympic medal earlier this year, she became the first ever reigning Xterra World Champion to win a gold Olympic medal, and her latest win serves to strongly cement her status as a triathlon superstar.

It adds to what is already a stellar resume and Duffy is widely cited as one of the best triathletes of all time, and her latest victory strongly makes the case that she should be considered the best triathlete of all time as far as road racing and off road racing.

The Xterra triathlon is off road, as in racing through trails/sand, while the ITU and Olympic triathlons are road racing, and Duffy is one of the few to excel at both styles of racing, and is now the only triathlete in the world, male or female, to have six Xterra world titles.

The Bermudian triathlete has won world titles across multiple federations, so this win marks her 11th world championship victory overall, and she already stands in history as the only person to win three triathlon world titles in the same year, which she did back in 2016, claiming the WTS, ITU Cross Triathlon, and Xterra titles.
