FLORA DUFFY 3RD TODAY – FILE PHOTO

Flora Duffy finished 3rd today in the Banyoles World Cup after finding out 25 minutes before the race start that she would be starting !

Flora admitted in the interview after the race that she did not really know the course very well but still managed to lead out of Banyoles Lake and work with a group of eight others to open up a 55 sec gap on the remainder of the field into T2. Flora then opened a gap with Laura Lindermann of Germany and the USA’s Tara Gorman. Lindermann, one of the fastest runners in triathlon, opened up a 50 meter gap just before lap 2 and although Flora initially opened up a gap on Gorman, the American caught back up and narrowly edged out Flora on the final sprint to the finish.

Flora expressed her appreciation to be on the start line and acknowledged that at one time she wasn’t sure if she would be running again so she has been delighted to put together three good races so early in her comeback.
