Duffy storms to fifth
win of the season
STOCKHOLM, Sweden---Bermudian Flora Duffy se-
cured her fifth ITU World Triathlon Series (WTS)
success of the season by storming to victory here
on Saturday and holds a big lead over her rivals
going into next month's Grand Final in the Dutch
city of Rotterdam.
Duffy, 29, won in a time of two hours and nine seconds,
with Britain's Jessica Learmonth second in 2.01.30, for
her first WTS podium. Australia's Ashleigh Gentle was
third in 2.01.42.
Duffy will go to Rotterdam on September 16 with 4,000
points in the bag as she seeks to retain her world title.
"I was very happy with today to execute a solid race in
the swim, bike and run. My swim has been a little shak-
ier this year so it was nice to come out third behind Jess
(Learmonth) and Lucy (Hall)," Duffy said.
Gentle is second in the standings with 3,507 points
with New Zealand's Andrea Hewitt, 10th on Saturday,
next on 3,224 points.
Duffy is now only the second woman to record five
first-place finishes in a season, after American Olympic
champion Gwen Jorgensen.(CMC)
Kiwis get nod to host
first day-night Test
Eden Park is set to host the first day-night Test in
New Zealand, after the Auckland Council approved
New Zealand Cricket's request to host England un-
der lights next year.
The match, beginning from March 22, was tentatively
scheduled as a day-night fixture before the approval.
New Zealand Cricket COO Anthony Crummy was
pleased with the accesibility the fixture allows.
"This a very important outcome for Test cricket lovers in
New Zealand - simply because it allows us the opportunity
to play the game at a time when more people can engage
with it," he said. "We're sure it will be a very successful
event, and that English and New Zealand fans alike will
make the most of the opportunity."
New Zealand had featured in the first ever day-night
Test against Australia in Adelaide in November 2015. Since
then, five Tests have been played under lights. Australia
have hosted three of those.
The Eden Park Test will be the eighth day-night Test
overall, following Adelaide's Ashes fixture later this year.
