On March 8th the world recognizes all women across the globe for their accomplishments, dreams and successes.
However, within ITU they are honoring amazing women every single day of the year.
But in celebration of the day Triathlon.org wanted to show some extra love and paid tribute to all of the strong, fierce, tough, talented and POWERFUL WOMEN in triathlon and in sport that inspire us to do and be better.
One of the Women Triathlon.org recognized was Bermuda’s Flora Duffy who is the current powerhouse fierce female athlete competing at the elite level.
In just a few years time she has gone from appearing in the winner’s circle to completely dominating it.
As the only elite woman competing for the small island country of Bermuda, she won her first World Triathlon Series race in WTS Stockholm in 2016.
After finishing 8th in the Rio de Janerio Olympic Games she then went on to win her first WTS World Championship in 2016.
She then followed up her success in 2017 by winning six WTS races and earning the title of back-to-back World Champion.
That season put her in the history books as one of two women to warn the most WTS podiums in a single season (7) as well as earning a victory with the largest winningest margin in a women’s race with 110 seconds.
Duffy is a beast on the bike, but she also has made a huge impact in the sport of triathlon on what it means to be a complete three-discipline athlete.
She excels in the swim, bike and run and has propelled the sport forward to push competitions to not expect anything less.
