2. HawleyErica Hawley says that any self-doubts she harboured before the Commonwealth Games have been replaced with a new-found confidence.
Hawley feared that she might not be ready for the Gold Coast, believing she could get swallowed up by a field including the world’s top women’s triathletes.
She need not have worried.
The 19-year-old produced a performance full of promise in the individual race, coming sixteenth, just eight seconds behind Olympian Gillian Sanders and ahead of Simone Ackermann, Sanders’ South African team-mate.

6. ButterfieldAs far as Tyler Butterfield is concerned, the pressure was off after Flora Duffy’s gold medal in the women’s triathlon.

“It was so exciting and seeing her win made the Games for me,” said Butterfield, who placed a respectable eighteenth in the men’s race that followed this morning.

“I’m sure everyone in Bermuda is on a high right now. It really didn’t matter whether I had a good or a bad race.

“I thought, ‘It’s just fun from now on’, even though I knew it was still going to hurt.”

Butterfield admits he had some initial nerves dropping down from the Ironman to sprint distance, but those fears proved unwarranted and he was satisfied with his performance.

4. Flawless DuffyFlora Duffy has cemented her iconic status in Bermudian sport after executing a perfect race to seize the gold medal at the Commonwealth Games.

Duffy was already the undisputed queen of triathlon and added another historic moment to her growing legacy by winning Bermuda’s second Commonwealth gold and first of any colour by a woman, finishing the sprint-distance race in a time of 56min 50sec — 43 seconds ahead of second-placed Jess Learmonth, of England.

And there was more good news for the island when Erica Hawley, the 19-year-old, finished sixteenth in 1hr 3min 14sec.
