Aspiring young Flora Duffys get chance to shine in duathlon
It was not only those at elite level who got the chance to shine on WTS Bermuda day with some of the island’s potential young stars competing in the duathlon.
More than 100 aspiring Flora Duffys aged 15 and under took to the start line a few hours before Bermuda’s superstar to compete in a bike and a run down Front Street.
Despite the early start, the youngsters had probably the best of the weather with some keen competition taking place.
Fenella Wightman who will be competing for Bermuda in the Carifta Games on island next week was the winner of the girls 13-15 category, with Kelise Wade coming out on top in the 11-12 age group and Naomi MacGuinness beating out 29 rivals in the 7-10 section.
The 13-15 boys’ victory went the way of Jake Smith, who was joined as a winner by 11-12 champion Jens Drea. The youngest age group (7-10) was won by the impressive Jace Postlethwaite.
