Paparwee (Yeepoon) Assavadakorn (Class of 2009) got off to a great start in the 2016 Thailand Triathlon Series in Bangsaen. Yeepoon won first place in the AG Sprint Distance category at the Bangsaen Triathlon in February.
She achieved this extraordinary feat by swimming 750m in the sea, biking 26km and running 6km in total time of 1h41min. It was a great day and despite her knee injury not allowing her to run well, Yeepoon finished the swim and the bike ride strongly to be victorious in her event.
Yeepoon is sponsored by SISBAA.
