May 15, 2011 0 Comments Blog by Administrator

April saw the inaugural Ironkids event held in Phuket at The Thanyapura Sports & Leisure Club at The Phuket International Academy (PIA), and saw 113 kids taking part.

The mission of the event is to inspire, motivate and develop young people into leading an active and healthy lifestyle through participation in sport and recreation.

Sunseeker Thailand/Asia, along with a number of other local companies, took the opportunity to sponsor a participant of the Boys Senior event; Nicky Murphy, who is a pupil at PIA on a football scholarship programme.  C&C Marine, Hull-Suzuki Marine, The Expat Hotel-Patong and KiteSurf were among other sponsors for Nicky too.

The event saw the participants compete over a 300m swim, then a 12km bike ride followed by a 3m run.  After finishing the swim in 2nd place, Nicky came out of the 1st transition section leading the event and never looked back from then on.

Nicky won the event comfortably in the end and was awarded his medal by Jurgen Zack, 8 times World Champion of Ironman and Thailand’s Minister for Sport.

Well done to Nicky Murphy.
