Hawley earns Edmonton spot
Flora Duffy might have withdrawn from ITU World Triathlon Edmonton, but Bermuda will still have a competitor in the elite women’s race on Friday.
Erica Hawley has earned a spot on the startlist because of her world ranking, which is 145th, and will compete in the WTS for the first time in Edmonton, a sprint-distance race, and the sixth stop on the nine-race series.
The 20-year-old came twelfth in the first semi-final of the Tiszaujvaros ITU Triathlon World Cup last weekend, missing out on the final by two places.
The Bermudian finished the sprint-distance race in 1hr 1min 50sec — including a personal best of 17:41 in the run.
Hawley, who attends the University of Colorado, placed sixteenth at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, Australia, in April.
