Thirty-three Thai triathletes have successfully qualified for the upcoming Asia Triathlon Cup and Asia Triathlon Youth Championship in Hong Kong, scheduled for November 19.
The contingent was selected after rigorous trials conducted by the Thailand Triathlon Federation earlier in August, where competitors from across the nation vied for a chance to represent their country. These athletes are set to challenge participants from 17 countries in a test of endurance and skill.
The Asia Triathlon Cup 2023, a major event in the triathlon calendar, will see the elite category athletes undertake a grueling 750m swim, a 20km cycle, followed by a 5km run. The Youth/U15 segment will involve a 375m swim, a 10km cycle, and a 2.5km run, catering to the younger talent pool.
