Flora Duffy (BER) could not have asked for a better race scenario as a dominant performance captured her the 2018 MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda crown in front of thousands of cheering fans. The gold earned on home soil was her first WTS win of the season and a first for the inaugural event, with a comfortable victory margin of 96 seconds in the first Olympic-distance race of the season.
“I don’t think this moment is going to sink in for a while, but what I will say when it does is that this will probably be one of the highlights of my career. I mean this is incredible, the streets were lined, and it was just a phenomenal atmosphere, it was incredible.
