Duffy Leads World Triathlon Series Points Standings
Bermuda’s Flora Duffy collected the first win of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Qualifying period on Saturday, landing another brilliant gold at the 2018 ITU World Triathlon Yokohama. Winning here for the second year in succession, it was also a second straight win of the season following her home-turf gold in Bermuda last month.
Duffy continued her streak of strong race consistency from start to finish after leading out of the swim, remaining in the lead bike pack and then stealing the race away in the run, which ultimately left her at the top of the Series leaderboard in the WTS rankings with 2000 points.
Duffy has two wins under her belt, with American Katie Zaferes second with 1781 points after two races and in third place is Kirsten Kasper with 1582 after two races.
“Coming after such a high in April from the Commonwealth Games and Bermuda it was definitely a stretch to get here. I am very happy with my race, I often don’t get enough credit for my running, I came off the bike with a group of really strong runners,” Duffy said of her latest win.
