Duffy victory wins praise from politicians
Flora Duffy’s win in Saturday’s MS Amlin World Triathlon today earned praise across the political spectrum.
Michael Weeks, Minister of Social Development and Sport, said the performance was a “proud day for Bermuda”.
Mr Weeks added: “I think anyone who was there on Saturday shared in something very special.
“The atmosphere was absolutely electrifying and my heart was pounding from the moment that Flora and the other athletes first hit the water.”
Jeanne Atherden, leader of the Opposition, said Ms Duffy’s performance was “nothing short of spectacular”.
Ms Atherden added: “All of Bermuda came out to support our beloved daughter of the soil.
“Yesterday’s event showed that we can be an inclusive society that recognises and appreciates the skill and ability of our athletes.
“The vibe of the fans, the organisers and the volunteers at the event was totally awesome.”
Mr Weeks also congratulated all the other participants who took part in races over the weekend, as well as the event’s organisers.
He added: “I encourage everyone to come out tomorrow, Monday April 30, to support Flora and Clarence “Nicky” Saunders as they take part in a motorcade which leaves the Hamilton Princess Hotel and Beach Club at 11:30am.”
The motorcade will travel along Pitts Bay Road, up Queen Street, east along Church Street, and south down Court Street.
It will arrive on the grounds of the Cabinet Office about noon.
