When asked why he decided to come to Thanyapura, Gonnet reflected, “I saw in Thanyapura more than sports, a resort and health facilities. I am excited to be part of such an incredible team of passionate and skilled people.

Thanyapura’s mission caught my attention immediately; inspiring you to optimise yourself. This is so powerful; to become a better version of yourself through the 3-dimensional approach: Mind, Body and Soul.

“I can’t wait to push the sports and events programming to the next level and make a difference in people’s lives. Juan Antonio Samaranch said it best, ‘Sport is friendship; sport is health; sport is education; sport is life; sport brings the world together.’”
