Duffy Honored By Triathlon.org On Women's Day

On March 8th the world recognizes all women across the globe for their accomplishments, dreams and successes.

However, within ITU they are honoring amazing women every single day of the year.

But in celebration of the day Triathlon.org wanted to show some extra love and paid tribute to all of the strong, fierce, tough, talented and POWERFUL WOMEN in triathlon and in sport that inspire us to do and be better.

One of the Women Triathlon.org recognized was Bermuda’s Flora Duffy who is the current powerhouse fierce female athlete competing at the elite level.

In just a few years time she has gone from appearing in the winner’s circle to completely dominating it.

As the only elite woman competing for the small island country of Bermuda, she won her first World Triathlon Series race in WTS Stockholm in 2016.

After finishing 8th in the Rio de Janerio Olympic Games she then went on to win her first WTS World Championship in 2016.

She then followed up her success in 2017 by winning six WTS races and earning the title of back-to-back World Champion.

That season put her in the history books as one of two women to warn the most WTS podiums in a single season (7) as well as earning a victory with the largest winningest margin in a women’s race with 110 seconds.

Duffy is a beast on the bike, but she also has made a huge impact in the sport of triathlon on what it means to be a complete three-discipline athlete.

She excels in the swim, bike and run and has propelled the sport forward to push competitions to not expect anything less.

TMR Kids Duathlon Announced
Bermuda’s school children are invited to participate in next month’s MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda Festival Weekend.

The Tokio Millennium Re (TMR) Kids Duathlon is Friday April 27th, the evening before Bermuda’s prestigious World
Triathlon Series, and children will compete on part of the very same race course that the world’s top triathletes, including Flora Duffy, will race on the following day.

It’s a rare opportunity to experience a famous blue carpet finish, with all the action on Front Street,

Bermuda is hosting the ITU governed World Triathlon Series on April 28th, the second stop on the global circuit out of 8 cities, before the Grand Final in Australia.

A weekend of festivities is planned around it from April 26th – 29th.

“The TMR Kids Duathlon is an important part of the weekend of festivities,” said Phil Schmidt, Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee of World Triathlon Bermuda.

“It’s by participating, especially in this environment with world class athletes, that young people become inspired to develop their athletic skills. Flora Duffy, at the age of 9, set her mind to become the World Champion and achieved it”, he said.

Race registration is FREE and is now open at www.tribermuda.com. Registration is a requirement for entry. The TMR Kids Duathlon is open to all children including first time participants, aged 7 – 15 years.

The Duathlon starts at 7.00pm and is in three sections, run, bike and a second run and unlike triathlon, there is no swimming.

It was agreed the race would be a Duathlon so that the junior athletes would not be required
to swim at night.

This also encourages more children to participate, as Running and Cycling in Bermuda is more popular than swimming. Children will race in age groups, with a shorter distance for 7 – 10 year olds.

All information is available at www.tribermuda.com
Race organizers are taking information to schools to attract new young participants to the sport.

FREE training sessions and practice races will be held at National Sports Centre leading up to the race and they will continue throughout the year, after the April event.

Through this program, TMR is supporting the development of young triathletes in Bermuda and encourage all to attend.

Children who don’t have a bike are also encouraged to come along, as loaner bikes will be made available.

The first session is Sunday March 18th on a walk-in basis, with no registration required and all are welcome. More information about all training sessions is available from Neil De St Croix - email: Neil@northrock.bm

Kathleen Faries, Head of Bermuda’s TMR branch said, “We are proud to be the lead sponsor of the TMR Kids Duathlon and the free practice sessions. Being involved in this prestigious event, which will showcase some of Bermuda’s best young athletes, is a fantastic opportunity for all of us at TMR to show our continued support of youth sport in Bermuda.”

She said, “We are excited to watch Flora shine on her home turf, and we are especially proud to sponsor an event that will encourage and excite young athletes island wide to one day follow in her footsteps”.
