07/26 19:17 CDT Olympics Latest: Bermuda's Flora Duffy wins triathlon gold Olympics Latest: Bermuda's Flora Duffy wins triathlon gold TOKYO (AP) --- The Latest on the Tokyo Olympics, which are taking place under heavy restrictions after a year's delay because of the coronavirus pandemic: ___ Flora Duffy has won the Olympic women's triathlon, earning Bermuda's first Olympic gold medal and its first medal of any kind since 1976. Duffy is a two-time former world triathlon series champion. She's competing in her fourth Olympics and is one of just two athletes representing Bermuda in Tokyo. The start of the race was delayed 15 minutes because of storm conditions around Tokyo Bay. Duffy pumped her arms over her head as she finished the swimming, cycling and running course in 1 hour, 55:36 minutes. The 33-year-old Duffy had never finished higher than eighth in her previous three Olympic triathlons. Bermuda hadn't medaled at the Olympics since boxer Clarence Hill's bronze in heavyweight boxing in Montreal. Great Britain's Georgia Taylor-Brown won the silver medal and American Katie Zaferes won bronze.
