28 May Laguna Phuket Triathlon
Thanyapura Athletes Dominate Laguna Phuket Triathlon Festival
This is always a highlight on the international race calendar and definitely something to look forward to again 12 months from now.
Our athletes prepared well for this race and were rewarded by fantastic performances! Congratulations go out to our Thanyapura relay teams for their podium performances at the Laguna Phuket Triathlon. One of our regulars Jaray Jearanai won his age group and was the first Thai athlete across the finish line. The women’s podium was populated by Thanyapura athletes: Parys Edwards came in first overall female, pipping Belinda Granger who is celebrating her 12th LPT appearance. Katja Rabe rounded out the podium.
The following week saw Thanyapura host the Junior Challenge for our young and aspiring athletes, with many of the pro competitors for the next day’s Challenge Phuket cheering them on.
Last year’s LPT champion Ruedi Wild showed his best performance at the longer race this year with his first win at the half distance. Our Freddy Croneborg proved his consistency by taking the second spot.
Parys made a repeat appearance on the podium at Challenge Phuket, taking second place just behind now four-time champion Melissa Hauschildt.
