Over the month of January triathlon.org has been naming the “Best of 2017” moments from the year, anything from overall athletes to top race performances to inspirational finishes because when you have a year like we just had, you have to celebrate it!
Today they have announced that Women’s Overall Triathlete of the year is Bermuda’s Flora Duffy.
Duffy will forever be known as one, if not the top cyclists in the triathlon world. However, over the last couple of seasons, Duffy has proved that her strength does not lie in only pedaling alone. She has transitioned into one of the best overall triathletes, where she excels in all three disciplines - swim, bike and run. With her six WTS wins in 2017 and her second WTS World Crown, Duffy continued to be on fire in 2017, which only gets us more pumped and excited to see what she can do in 2018!
