28 May Training camp held in Thailand in anticipation of Asian Beach Games
With Modern Triathle added to the program of the 4th edition of the Asian Beach Games which will be held in Phuket in Thailand from 14-21 November, UIPM has been working with the newly formed Modern Pentathlon Thailand Association to train their athletes in preparation for this watershed moment in the history of this event.
The first of several training camps was held earlier this month with workshops for coaches and athletes with UIPM Technical Delegate Bernhard ‘Pedro’ Petruschinski lending his expertise and knowledge to the locals.
Low-cost equipment, including Eko-Aims pistols and SimPower targets, was distributed the participants with UIPM in constant discussion with coaches and athletes to oversee their training in running, swimming and laser shooting.
Held on the pristine beaches of Thailand, this training camp and workshop proved once again how easy Modern triathle is to organise and how much fun it is to part take in for people of all ages.
