Duffy, the reigning ITU World Triathlon Series women’s champion, is among five local elite athletes who have been granted funding to go towards their bids for 2020 Olympic qualification.

Duffy will receive an Olympic Scholarship through the International Olympic Committee’s Olympic Solidarity programme.

Sailor Cecilia Wollmann, long jumper Tyrone Smith and sprinter Tre Houston — who all competed along with Duffy at the 2016 Rio Olympics — and high jumper Jah-Nhai Perinchief are the other beneficiaries of the Olympic Scholarship.
