Early morning on Sunday 25 September, at the Sapan Hin public pool south of Phuket Town, a group of around 200 athletes – including a strong team from BISP – were feverishly setting up bikes and preparing equipment.
The pool parking lot was the transition area for both the Andaman Sprint Triathlon and Duathlon.
Around 630am, after all the warmups were finished, the first wave of swimmers set off and the run began for the duathletes. An hour and fifteen minutes later the first finishers would start to arrive. The tough course would have the athletes cycling down to the Phuket Aquarium then running loops around Sapan Hin Park.
To say that BISP had a good showing would be a rather large understatement. They collectively took home four age group championships along with another three podiums finishes. It was an outstanding effort.
