Duffy: International Woman Triathlete Of Year

January 4, 2022

Bermuda’s Dame Flora Duffy has been named the 2021 International Woman Triathlete of the Year by Triathlon Magazine Canada.

The Triathlon Magazine Canada website said, “If there was some debate as to who we should name the top woman international triathlete of 2021 [you can hear my attempt at a debate, anyway, with Phil Wrochna in our last podcast of 2021], it got more than settled on New Year’s Eve, when Bermuda’s Flora Duffy was made a Dame of the Order of the British Empire.

“It truly has been a magical year for Duffy, who claimed Olympic gold in Tokyo in her fourth Olympic performance, then followed that up a few weeks later with the win in Montreal. While she would finish third at the World Triathlon Championship Final in Edmonton, the result was enough to net her a third world title.

“At the end of September she used her wildcard entry at the final Super League Event in Malibu to good stead, taking the win that day, too. Her impressive racing continued with a win at WTCS Abu Dhabi in November, followed by a sixth-straight Xterra world title.”
