Tokyo 2020: Meet the smallest country to win a gold medal in the history of the Olympic Games.

“I think all of Bermuda is freaking out, that’s what makes us so special. Yes, that was my dream (to win gold), but I also knew I was bigger than me,” added Flora Duffy.

Bermuda made history in the Tokyo Olympics by becoming the smallest country in the world to win a gold medal. The feat was achieved in the Women’s Triathlon with Flora Duffy, 33, who climbed to the highest position on the podium.

Duffy ended the triathlon with a time of one hour 55 minutes and 36 seconds to become an Olympic medalist of a country that has only 62,278 inhabitants.

“I think all of Bermuda is freaking out, that’s what makes us so special. Yes, that was my dream (to win gold), but I also knew that he was bigger than me,” he added.

The triathlete had a great rival ahead of her in the competition: tropical storm Nepartak, which even delayed the start of the event by 15 minutes. Britain’s Taylor-Brown, who took silver, and Katie Zeferes, who took bronze, completed the podium.

The athlete of Bermuda managed to surpass grenade, which until then had been the smallest country to win a gold medal in the London 2012 Olympics, with the swimmer Kirani James, who won the 400-meter swimming event.
