The athlete who competed at home has fulfilled the predictions and has achieved a clear victory

After the surprise in the men's test where the Norwegian Casper Stornes To get the victory it was the turn of the women, where we had no Spanish representation after, the accident suffered earlier in the week for Carolina Routier

The women's race was a monologue by the local triathlete Flora Duffy. The one from Bermuda ran at home, sheltered by its public that crowded the streets of Hamilton. And she did not disappoint, providing a great show and showing that today it is almost unbeatable.

He started dominating the swimming segment, later he remained leading the cycling sector alone almost entirely. And then I kept adding seconds of advantage in each lap on foot until I reached the finish line.

Finally, she achieved victory with almost two minutes of advantage over the two triathletes who would accompany her on the podium. And it is that the emotion of the test was behind, in the fight for the medals.

American Katie Zaferes was the first to try to secure silver, leaving the first of the second transition. Behind, the British Vicky Holland was cutting meters to the American until hunting her at the end of the first of the four laps that made up the 10 kilometers on foot.

The two triathletes went together to the finish, with Zaferes always ahead. He even tried to change the pace 500 meters from the goal, but Holland did not take off and they reached the finish line with everything to decide.

After an agonizing final sprint and using the technology of the photo finish, the British won the silver medal being the bronze for Zaferes. On this occasion the Spanish expedition did not have triathletes at the starting line, waiting for the next World Series, in Yokohama, where the Olympic qualification begins to start scoring points for Tokyo 2020.
