“This is a collaboration like no other here in Asia.  The sport of triathlon is booming here, with concurrent addition of triathlon events in the region.  Thanyapura is right where it should be in providing athletes with the necessary facilities to aid in athlete performance.  With Ironguides working with Thanyapura in its online coaching platform, we can reach and support many goal-minded triathletes all over the world,” said Vinnie Santana, ironguides head coach.

The online facility aims to help the sport’s newcomers, time-starved triathlon enthusiasts and intermediate to advanced athletes with demanding challenges and goals.

Triathletes who sign up with the programme learn more about training time management, technique improvements for swimming, biking and running, as well as improved physical ability, race strategy and tactics.
