Bermuda Olympic Gold Medalist Flora Duffy has announced on social media, that she has received a Wild Card Invite for the Ironman 70.3 Worlds.
Duffy wrote, “St George bound! I officially received an invitation from Ironman as a Wild Card. Thank you for the opportunity Ironman Triathlon - I really appreciate it and will do my best to add to the excitement of the women’s race.
The truth is, I have been trying to get to 70.3 Worlds for a few years now. I really wanted to race in PE in 2018, being in South Africa. But I got injured. An injury that somewhat kept me down through Nice 2019. I then did qualify for the 2020 Worlds in New Zealand, but then the race was canceled due to Covid. My slot was rolled to 2021 but after the Olympics, I was exhausted and did not race. So laid out like this, it has been a journey- this year included. I am really thrilled to get to start finally.”
