3. LeeperLeeper, however, ensured the hundreds in attendance still had plenty to cheer with an inspiring win in the 400, as the only parathlete in the event, finishing in a meet record time of 45.21.

The American said the “amazing” support he received from the crowd helped propel him to a thrilling victory, edging compatriot Brycen Spratling by one hundredths of a second. Mike Berry made it a podium clean sweep for the United States, crossing the line in 46.11.

2. Walk of FameBermuda icons including Clyde Best and Flora Duffy will be celebrated in a Walk of Fame being planned for the National Sports Centre.

The Centre’s trustees are appealing for sponsorship for the project, due to be launched in June, which will see life-size pictures of Bermuda’s best known sports stars go on display.

Commonwealth gold medal-winner Duffy and trailblazing footballer Best were among those selected by sporting bodies, along with boxer Clarence Hill, Commonwealth high jump record-holder Clarance “Nicky” Saunders, triathlete Tyler Butterfield, swimmer Victor Ruberry, diver Katura Horton-Perinchief, hockey player Emma Simmons, volleyball player Lisa LeBlanc and cricketer Clarence Parfitt.

1. Flora FundFlora Duffy has launched a fund to support young Bermudians aiming to follow in the world champion triathlete’s footsteps.

The “Flora Fund”, started by a donation from Duffy in partnership with the Bermuda Community Foundation, aims to help aspiring and talented Bermuda athletes reach their goals.

Duffy said: “I could not have successfully pursued my dream of being a professional athlete without considerable help.

“Competing at the highest level of any sport requires constant funding and encouragement.

“I am massively grateful for the private and corporate support that, along with my family, enabled me to get there.

“Now I would like to help others where I canung Bermudians aiming to follow in the world champion triathlete’s footsteps.

FloraFlora Duffy hailed her comprehensive destruction of the MS Amlin World Triathlon Bermuda field as being close to perfection before declaring her victory as the “absolute highlight of my career”.

Duffy’s display was simply breathtaking in its complete dominance over a quality field, underlined by her becoming the first woman in World Triathlon Series history to win a race after being the fastest in all three disciplines of swim, bike and run.

Unsurprisingly, Duffy came out of Hamilton Harbour in first place before relentlessly building a mammoth lead with every purposeful pedal of her Bermuda-pink bike and each assured stride of the run.

Duffy owns the ITU circuit, having lost only one race she has completed in the past two seasons, and at times in Saturday’s race it seemed hardly worth the other triathletes turning up.
