Going for gold: The Thanyapura Junior Challenge Triathlon is part of the elite sports facility’s commitment to nurturing young sporting talent.

Thanyapura has an outstanding reputation in the world of triathlon, with two of the sport’s legends – Tim Jardine and Juergen Zack – acting as coaches at the Thanyapura Triathlon Academy which has launched competitive events and several training camps for both young athletes and adults.
