This Day One Year Ago Bermuda's Dame Duffy Won Gold
On a rainy Tuesday in Tokyo one year ago today, Dame Flora Duffy crossed the finish line of the 2020 Olympic Triathlon one minute ahead of her competition, securing the first-ever Olympic Gold Medal for Bermuda.
Duffy was part of a group of seven who broke clear at the start of the 40km bike but then stamped her authority on the race with a fantastic performance over the 10km run to finish in 1:55.36, sending the island into an eruption.
The victory, in her fourth Olympics, caps a wonderful career for Duffy, as she becomes her country's second Olympic Medalist after Clarence Hill captured heavyweight boxing Bronze at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
