    A huge well done to Flora Duffy--she won silver on 16 August in the ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships in Zittau, Germany. More details here.

    Well done also to Tyler Smith and Erica Hawley (pictured left, along with team manager Karen Smith). They represented Bermuda very capably in the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing in China. Despite being one of the youngest competitors, Tyler finished 19th out of 32 in 58:11. Erica was one of several athletes who fell on the wet bike section, but she showed her courage by resuming and finished 29th out of 32 in 1:08:14. More details here.

    Meanwhile in Canada, Riaan Naude and Kim McMullen both earned podium places in the Kelowna Triathlon, while Chris Eaton and Matt Thompson finished strongly in the Mont Tremblant North American Ironman Championship. More details here.
