Congratulations to Flora Duffy, Bermuda’s first ever Olympic gold medalist – a statement from Opposition Leader, the Hon, N. Cole Simons, JP, MP

“What a proud moment for Bermuda’s own Flora Duffy on finishing first in the women’s Triathlon this evening at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games and gaining Bermuda’s first ever gold medal.

Watching Flora’s outstanding race, I know I can speak on behalf of all Bermudians that we are bursting with pride….. Indeed we ran along side of you, step by step, even as you lapped others! What a performance!

Flora Duffy, you will continue to inspire upcoming local and international athletes both now and for generations to come.

Congratulations once again to you, your parents, your family, your friends, here and around the world.

As a nation we stand to give you a rousing standing ovation and thank you for your consistent commitment to excellence.

Flora Duffy, Bermuda’s gold medal Olympic champion!
