Bermuda has decided to turn October 18 into a national holiday to celebrate the golden medal that Flora Duffy won at the Olympics in Tokyo earlier this year. Duffy is the best athlete the country has ever had and to show her respect the government felt like there should be a day to celebrate her amazing victories. “Wow, this is so cool. Thank you,” Duffy, who nowadays spends most of her time training under the South African sun, commented on Twitter.
