Triathlon Superkidz take charge in Phuket

PHUKET: More than 180 kids took part in the Thanyapura Superkidz Triathlon 2015 event on April 4.

The event pulled young athletes from around the world – Sweden, New Zealand, Netherland, American, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Australia, UK, Germany – as many of them prepare for the International Junior Challenge slated for later this year.

The triathlon was broken down into six age groups: 6 years old; 7-8 years old; 9-10 years old; 11-12 years old; 13-14 years old; and 15-18 years old.

“We have held Superkidz events for the third year in a row and have received great response over the years with increased number of participants and growing interest in the triathlon sports. The children did great today and hope they continuously keep on training and come back for the Junior Challenge race in November.” says Thanyapura Executive Chairman Chris McCormack.
