Laguna Phuket Triathlon
Once again Phuket didn’t disappoint with a fantastic race. The sun was out and conditions were great for the unique 1.9k swim over 2 stretches of water; a pretty technical 50k bike ride which featured the infamous Naithon hills and then took a new route through some villages (and even through a prison!); finishing off with a scorching run over the golf course and the Laguna estate. The mens title was taken jointly by Massimo Cigano and Alberto Casadei, both from Venice, Italy with a dead heat time of 2 hrs 33mins. Parys Edwards from Australia was the female winner in 2hrs 54mins.
A sizeable contingent from Singapore made the trip up and we saw some great performances from ANZA members against a very strong field. Performance of the day goes to Vanessa Colless who won her age group and was 7th overall Female.
The main event, of course, was the legendary Awards Party – it is expected that hangovers will be clearing up for those who plan to take part in the Challenge Phuket race this coming Sunday – good luck to those taking part.
