3. DuffyFlora Duffy came about as close to perfection as you can get in winning a second successive ITU World Triathlon Series crown on Saturday.

The Bermudian needed only to finish no lower than seventh in the WTS Grand Final in Rotterdam, having won five of six previous races in the 2017 series and finishing second in the other one. It was clear early on that only injury or a crash would stop the 29-year-old from reaching her goal.

From being only one second off the pace on the swim, to one second ahead on the bike, Duffy ran across the line all on her own, as she has done so many times during this record-breaking campaign.

She finished the race in a time of 1hr 58min 39sec, and it was almost a minute before her nearest rival followed suit, with Katie Zaferes, of the United States, finishing 55 seconds behind in second place. Duffy ends the campaign with a perfect 5,200 points, with each competitor’s five best scores being taken into account.

1. BachInternational Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach hailed the historic decision to officially award the 2024 and 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games to Paris and Los Angeles as "extraordinary" after the tripartite agreement was ratified during the Session here today.

Bach claimed it was harder to imagine a better scenario for the IOC, Paris and Los Angeles than giving the two cities an edition of the Olympics and Paralympics.

It came after the Session rubber-stamped the agreement between the two cities and the IOC by a show of hands.

The decision was unanimous as none of the 80 members present and eligible to take part went against the vote.

Bach presented Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo with cards displaying Paris 2024 and Los Angeles 2028.

The Host City Contracts for the 2024 and 2028 Games were then signed by both cities.

In what looked like a near perfect race outcome that suited her strengths, Flora Duffy (BER) had a dominating performance at the 2017 ITU World Triathlon Rotterdam to claim victory and reclaim her ITU World Championship title for the second year in a row. Making a name for herself as one of the most consistent swim, bike and run athletes, Duffy’s Grand Final gold ended a season that saw her claim six WTS races in the year, that all aided in her repeat world honour.
