FLORA FINISHES 2ND OVERALL AFTER THIRD DAY OF RACING IN $500,000 ISLAND HOUSE TRIATHLON

Despite a strong effort on the bike today in the final event of three,  Flora was not able to prevent Gwen Jorgensen from taking her 2nd Island House Triathlon title but her effort meant that she finished 2nd overall with the UK’s Holly Lawrence taking 3rd. After 2nd place finishes on days 1 and 2 Flora had hoped to finish with a win on day 3 over the 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run but despite opening up a lead on Jorgensen going into the run, the American caught her towards the end of the run.
