Phuket Sport: Inaugural Thanyapura Junior Challenge triathlon winners

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: Hundreds of junior athletes and spectators alike turned up at Thanyapura Phuket this morning to participate in the inaugural Thanyapura Junior Challenge triathlon event, which turned out to be a special and timeless day for many.

Indeed, the spirits of staff, local media, peers, parents and relatives were seemingly unhindered by the morning’s blistering heat and humidity; supporters wholeheartedly and energetically cheered on from the sides in support for the courageous and talented youth triathletes, aged 4 to 18, in their respective mini-triathlon legs – swimming, cycling and running – courses on and around the lush and scenic Thanyapura in Thalang.

Presiding over the event were newly appointed Thanyapura executives – CEO Michael Gilliam and Executive Chairman Chris McCormack. (Click here to read about their recent appointments.)

All finishers were awarded a medal and, it goes without saying, the invaluable boost of confidence that comes with such great accomplishment.

Following are the top three finishers in each category:
