    Running away with it: Flora Duffy stormed to victory in MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda last weekend


Flora Duffy has been placed on the United States Sports Academy’s Athlete of the Month ballot for April in recognition of her gold medal win at the Commonwealth Games and victory in MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda.

Duffy claimed Bermuda’s second Commonwealth gold and first of any colour by a woman on the Gold Coast on April 3 before returning home to storm to a memorable triumph in WTS Bermuda last weekend.

The selection committee have chosen 12 athletes — six male and six female — from five countries.

Duffy is in esteemed company with the nominees including LeBron James, of the Cleveland Cavaliers, United States golfer Patrick Reed, baseball player Sean Manaea of the Oakland Athletics, Caster Semenya, the South Africa middle-distance runner, and US long-distance runner Desiree Linden.

The public is invited to participate in the academy’s worldwide Athlete of the Month programme by nominating athletes and then voting online during the first week of every month.

Votes are used to guide the academy selection committee in choosing the monthly winners, who then become eligible for selection to the prestigious Athlete of the Year ballot.

Voting will continue until 7pm, Bermuda time, on Thursday, May 10. To vote visit the academy website at www.ussa.edu.

You must be registered or signed-in to post comment or to vote.
