Flora Duffy Wins ITU World Triathlon Bermuda

05/01/2018

Two-Time ITU World Champion Flora Duffy had a memorable weekend in her home Country of Bermuda this past weekend. Racing in front of friends and family, Flora dominated the competition leading in the swim, bike and run earning herself an impressive victory. 

 

Flora was excited to welcome the ITU to Bermuda for the second stop in the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Series. This was the inagural ITU event in Bermuda but the island fully embraced the sport, with fans coming out to support their champion.

 

In commemoration of the special event Flora debuted a custom bike inspired by her country.
