On Sunday 23rd November 2014, a field of over 1,200 individual pro and age group athletes representing 47 nationalities took part in the Laguna Phuket Triathlon (LPT) jumping into the waters of Bangtao Bay at 6.30am to tackle the 1.8km swim, followed by a 55km bike ride and a 12km run. There were also 65 relay teams taking part amid the event’s renowned carnival atmosphere. This year’s entries once again break previous year’s record.
Italy’s Massimo Cigana and Alberto Casadei made impressive history together as they crossed the finish line together and claimed LPT’s first dual champions in the annual event’s 21-year history.
In the women’s field it was multiple world championship titles holder Parys Edwards of Great Britain, newly-crowned 2013 ITU World Championships in London, who finished the first place.
