Bermuda’s Flora Duffy awarded OBE, Andrea Hewitt receives New Zealand Order of Merit

Reigning World and Commonwealth Champion Flora Duffy has been awarded an OBE for her services to sport in Bermuda. World Series winner in 2016 and 2017, Duffy has also represented her country at three Olympic Games, and the impact that she has had on the island’s sporting landscape was underlined in April when it hosted a stop on the 2018 World Triathlon Series circuit for the first time.

New Zealand’s Andrea Hewitt was also honoured this week, receiving the Member of New Zealand Order of Merit. Hewitt has been one of triathlon’s central figures for more than a decade, with 60 WTS appearances and 20 podium finishes in her career to date. 

“Flora and Andrea represent everything that is great about our sport and these honours are hugely deserved,” said Marisol Casado, ITU President. “The dedication that is required to perform so consistently at their level, to set the kind of personal goals that they have and to achieve so much has been an inspiration to triathletes and fans all around the world. These two modern triathlon legends will forever be associated with our great sport, and this recognition is testament to their success.”
