“Please detour via Route 4025 via Heroines Monument,” the statement added.

World-class athletes will be competing in the Laguna Phuket Triathlon this Sunday, with a strong pro athlete line-up celebrating the race’s 25-year status as Asia’s longest triathlon race and vying for US$20,000 prize purse. (See story here.)
