The Bangkok Triathlon consisting of cycling, swimming and running featured a couple of our Shrewsbury International School Bangkok alumni Nichakarn Ruttanaporn ( Nini) from the Class of 2008 and Paparwee Assavadakorn (Yeepoon) Class of 2009). Nini and Yeepoon came in 2nd and 3rd place respectively in the Sprint Age Group for 18-29.

They were only just 38 seconds apart from each other! The girls swam 750 metres in the Chaophraya river, competed in a 30 kilometre bike ride and ran 5 km around the Grand Palace. They both rose to the challenge displaying their fine talent. We are extremely proud of Yeepoon and Nini & congratulate them on their success. SISBAA also wishes them luck for future endeavours which no doubt will result in much  success.
