Biography

Flora Duffy, OBE (born 30 September 1987) is a triathlete who competes internationally for Bermuda. She is the 2016 and 2017 ITU World Triathlon Series World Champion, the 2015 and 2016 ITU Cross Triathlon World Champion, and a five-time winner (2014-2017, 2019) of the XTERRA World Championships. She competed for Bermuda at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

In April 2018 Duffy collected the first Gold medal of the XXI Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia. Duffy won the women's sprint triathlon by a 43 second lead and became Bermuda's first female Commonwealth gold medalist. She was also scheduled to compete in the women's cross-country mountain bike at the Commonwealth Games, but did not start the event.

Duffy is the only person to win three triathlon world titles in the same year in 2016, claiming the WTS, ITU Cross Triathlon and Xterra titles in close succession. Duffy is the only triathlete in WTS history to post the fastest swim, bike and run portions in the same race. Duffy holds the record for the largest winning margin in both Olympic and Sprint distance races in a WTS event.

Duffy was educated at Warwick Academy, Kelly College, now known as Mount Kelly in Tavistock, Devon and the University of Colorado Boulder, where she graduated with a BA in Sociology.

Duffy was nominated by the Governor of Bermuda to Queens Birthday List for her services in sport to Bermuda. Duffy received her OBE in November 2018.

Flora Duffy launched The Flora Fund days after winning the inaugural WTS Bermuda in April of 2018. Through the fund Duffy hopes to enable youth in Bermuda to pursue their potential, ultimately contributing to a healthier, more ambitious community.   

In December 2017 Duffy married South African triathlete Dan Hugo in Stellenbosch, Hugo's native town, where the couple reside when not training in Boulder.
