Thanyapura athletes shine at Cha Am Triathlon
Fredrik Croneborg and Parys Edwards ruled the Amarin Outdoor Unlimited International Triathlon Cha-Am, the first of the Thailand Tri-League Series races. Our elite adults also scored spots in the open category: Nick Gates, Ben Hammond, Dimity-Lee Duke, Jaray Jearanai, Tom, Katja Rabe, Brooke Langereis, and Monica Torries. The triathlon academy scored age group victories with Ricky Phanthip, Danny Hyams, Sue Thornley, Jean Perrin, Daniel Blin, Sherri Drolet, and Kathrin Puff.
Our Elite Junior kids Caleb Sadler, Samuel O’Shea, Kyle Izzo, and Saryu Onishi, and the Born Free to Run athletes and all the Thai athletes from Phuket had great races. This was also a banner day for Alistair Watson, making a comeback exactly two years after back surgery!
