Fowler-Reid leads Jamaica over Fiji
GOLD COAST, Australia -- Jhaniele Fowler-Reid
practically outscored Fiji all on her own, as
Jamaica used their superior experience to
cruise to an 88 30 victory in their opening
netball match of the Commonwealth Games
The 6-feet, 6-inches tall goal shooter logged
40 goals out of 43 attempts, as the Jamaicans
reinforced their billing as a serious contender
for a medal.
The Sunshine Girls cruelly exposed the
limited experience of their opponents to lead
through all the quarters -- 22 9 after the irst
period, 49 15 at halftime and 69 22 after the
Fowler-Reid's 93 per cent accuracy was
made extra special, as she was benched for
the second half of the game and replaced by
similarly imposing Romelda Aiken, whose 24-
from-32 propelled Jamaica the rest of the way.
The Jamaicans are ranked No.4 in the world
and took bronze at the 2014 Commonwealth
Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
A pair of ef icient wins over world No.2
New Zealand White Ferns in the weeks lead-
ing into this year's Games set tongues wag-
ging on the international circuit and their
dismissal of the lowly-rated Fiji will reaf irm
The Girls face South Africa early on Friday

QUEENSLAND, Australia -- Bermuda's Flora Duffy
powered away in the inal run leg to win the
women's triathlon on the opening morning
of competition at the 2018 Commonwealth
The world No.1 women's triathlete entered
the contest as the raging hot favourite and
lived up to her billing, beating England's Jes-
sica Learmonth and Canadian Joanna Brown
for the gold medal.
The 30-year-old Duffy, a two-time world
champion, hadn't won a medal in two previ-
ous trips to a Commonwealth Games or her
three starts at an Olympics -- and she was de-
termined to put things right this time.
"It's pretty cool, it"s going to take a while to
soak in. . .a huge relief," said Duffy, the second
Bermudian to win a Commonwealth gold and
irst of any colour by a woman from the island.
"The Games come around once every four
years, they're quite elusive and hard to get. It
was de initely a lot of pressure and expecta-
tion put upon me. I'm glad I could execute a
normal race for myself."
Duffy went stroke for stroke with Lear-
month in the ocean swim and pedal for pedal
in the bike race over the irst two legs, but
she produced the third-quickest time over the
ive-kilometre run leg to put distance between
herself and the Englishwoman to clinch the
"We've raced together so much we have a
common understanding," she said of Lear-
month. "I know she'll pull through when she
can and she knows I'll pull through when I
"She's a phenomenal swimmer and she re-
ally nailed the swim, which I was hoping she
would, and I was just holding on to her."
Duffy said she was surprised however, that
there was a gap of one minute by the time the
bike race leg had been completed.
"When the gap got to about a minute (on the
bike), we said that's great, let's keep it steady
from here, no crazy surges because we've got
a nice lead and we've still got to run," she said.
"Then towards the end of the bike I said,
'Well done, let's go, game on'."
Duffy said she was excited about returning
home in a few weeks to celebrate with family
and friends when she races in the ITU World
Triathlon Bermuda on April 28. (CMC)
