I miss triathlon...swim bike run...I truly miss it!
This country is not having enough of it. In fact, the number of triathlons is shrinking. Langkawi Ironman is gone. Putrajaya Half Ironman was a 1 hit wonder. I started in A Famosa back in 2007 and that has also disappeared.
Sad to say, the Triathlon Association of Malaysia has been hibernating for donkey years. What is the president doin?!?!?! And the ministry of youth and sports don't show any interest in this multisport. Is that Datuk who...playing golf?? Sad sad sad...
Luckily there's Chan Chee Seng which we fondly call Uncle Chan. He has been putting tireless efforts organising triathlons in PD, Kenyir, Desaru and Miri (which I heard has been "hijacked" by another organiser)
The upcoming long awaited for will be in Kenyir on 10 April 2011
Looking forward to that!
The only downside is the journey there...long 5-6hrs drive... :(
