FLORA RANKED #1 IN ITU WORLD RANKINGS:
Non Stanford of GBR won the event in a time of 59:49, Jodie Stimpson of GBR was second in 59:56 and Flora Duffy was third in a time of 59:59.
Duffy was quoted after the race, “I don’t know if it was brave, stilly, stupid or what but I came out of the swim with a bit of a gap and I thought, well it is only a 20K so let me see. There was 30 seconds at one point and then I got caught coming into transition. But I did have a little bit of time to soft pedal and catch my breath and mentally prepare myself for a tough 5K. I actually felt pretty good on the run, and there was no way I was finishing fourth again! I spent half the year in Stellenbosch, which is just up the road, so a lot of friends and family are here watching, so the crowd was so amazing so I thought there was no way I am taking fourth, I have to get to third!”Well Done Flora!
