The City of Hamilton is thrilled to celebrate Flora Duffy’s Olympic gold medal win at the Tokyo Olympic Games yesterday.
Mayor Charles Gosling said, “Like many Bermudians, my family and I watched with pride as Flora stormed to victory to win the Women’s Triathlon last night. To watch her break away on the run was an absolutely euphoric moment.
“This monumental win marked an astounding moment of ‘firsts’ for Flora and indeed Bermuda – it is the first time Bermuda has won a Gold medal at the Olympics, the first time a Bermudian female has won a medal at the Olympics and it also makes Bermuda the least populated nation in Olympic history to ever win a gold medal at the Summer Olympics.
“To send her our congratulations does not even begin to express our thanks for representing Bermuda so exceptionally and for all her hard work and dedication to the sport. She is a role model to us all – a hero to our young, aspiring athletes – and I know she will be recognized as such upon her return to Bermuda.”
