PHUKET: Students from British International School Phuket (BIS) braved the searing heat last weekend to compete in the school’s annual triathlon competition.

The event, held on Saturday morning (February 11), was broken into various age groups, with both an individual and a group division for each.

Rex Grey, Director of Athletics at BIS, said the focus this year was on the younger age groups and getting them involved in the sport.

“I think just the notion of a triathlon and covering three disciplines is popular, and it’s good for the young ones to get a taste of that,” he said.

“The kids are very keen on their sport, so its very easy to get them involved.”

But while there was certainly no shortage of competition, the event was not all about winning. “We try to focus on participation rather than competition,” Mr Grey said.

The triathlon kicked off what was a week of sport at BIS, with athletics carnivals being held on Monday and Wednesday.
