Duffy Wins Leeds

Flora Duffy recorded her second successive ITU World Triathlon Series victory by romping home to win the Columbia Threadneedle W

orld Triathlon Leeds in England yesterday.

 

The Bermudian, who was always near the front of the pack before breaking clear early in the run, completed the course in 1hr 57min 2sec. Trailing her exactly a minute-and-a-half behind was Taylor Spivey, of the United States, with Italian Alice Betto third in 1:59:36.

 

Her victory comes four weeks after another dominant victory in Yokohama, Japan, in which she beat American Katie Zaferes by 1min 51sec.

Duffy managed to exit the waters just seconds behind Great Britain’s Jessica Learmonth, which set herself up perfectly to have an ideal cycle.

 Tokyo 2020The International Olympic Committee (IOC) revealed on Friday the next Summer Games, to be held in the Japanese capital, will feature 15 new events from Rio 2016.

These include mixed-gender relays in swimming, athletics and triathlon, as well as mixed team events in archery, fencing and judo.

There will also be a mixed doubles table tennis competition.

The changes mean Tokyo 2020 is set to be the most gender balanced Games in the history of the Olympics in terms of both athletes and events.

It is hoped women's participation will be a record high 48.9%.
