Flora Duffy will not defend her Bermuda World Triathlon Series title.
Making the announcement on her social media page Duffy states, “I sound like a broken record but I will not be racing @worldtriathlonbermuda.
Brutal news to announce.
After some decent running in Jan + Feb, my foot was just not right. I had an ultra sound & MRI which showed the tear in my post tib tendon was still there. So another PRP injection and in a moon boot. (This was 6 weeks ago). Of course I hoped I would be ok to line up in Bermuda, but that is not the case. I had to really back off training, unload and let the tendon heal. This photo was taken last year in Bermuda as I racked my bike on race day. I can remember being so happy, excited and (surprisingly) calm to be racing at home. Devastated not to be this year, but I’ll be back.
