1. Can you tell us about your background in the sport?

At first, I did riding mountain bike and running when I was 25 years old and I did enjoy it for 3 years then I got to know Triathlon because my friend in the village joined Laguna Triathlon so I went to cheer him up and I was really impressed. Then I started by practicing my swimming skill, as I wasn’t a good swimmer at that time. In the meantime, I improved my riding and running and after that I participated Laguna Triathlon in 2006.

2. Can you describe a typical training week?

I train 7 days a week and it is 25-30 hours a week that included 15 km swimming, 450-500 km for biking and running 70 – 90 km

3. What is your favorite race in Asia and why?

My favorite race in Asia is in Laguna Phuket Triathlon because it’s my home tome and I have lot of friends and spectators who comes to support me. I love the bike course here the view is fantastic. Aseptically I love the hilly bike course.
