Flora Duffy produced another outstanding performance to take 5th place in the Gold Coast World Cup Triathlon today, Saturday 11th April, a race that featured the sport’s best.
Flora was 6th out of the water but took long turns on the front on the 43km bike and together with 7 others opened up a one minute lead by the 10km run. American Gwen Jorgensen was in that group and after 7 wins in a row she soon distanced the opposition despite a 15 sec penalty for not racking her bike. It was a 1,2,3 for the USA with Sarah True ( formerly Goff) taking 2nd ahead of Katie Zaferes. Duffy just got caught on the line by New Zealand’s Andrea Hewitt but was given a lot of credit for her all out performance.
