Klamer didn't come close to a slice.

She was unable to swim with the front runners during the first 1,500 meters and ended up in a chasing group together with compatriot Maya Kingma, the only other Dutch participant.

After the 40 kilometers of cycling, Klamer and Kingma were more than a minute behind the leaders.

Klamer started an impressive run in the final 10 kilometers and finished fourth at 2.12 minutes from Duffy.

Duffy distanced himself from her competitors while running.

Behind the top favorite, Britain's Georgia Taylor-Brown (silver at 1.14 from Duffy) and the American Katie Zaferes (bronze at 1.27) completed the podium.

Kingma has to settle for eleventh place

Kingma had to settle for eleventh place.

The 25-year-old from Brabant, who made his debut at the Games, was a candidate for a medal, as she leads the World Cup standings.

After Klamer, she became the second Dutchman last month to win a game from the World Tritahlon Championships Series.

Klamer's strong performance was surprising, because she has had a difficult year, including the death of her mother and heart problems with her husband.

The 30-year-old Gelderlander participated in the Games for the third time and finished 36th (2012) and 10th (2016) the previous times.

The game at the Odaiba Marine Park in Tokyo started 15 minutes later than planned due to the torrential rain.

During the race it cleared up again.
