PERAK TRIATHLON MARINA ISLAND 2022
The third edition of Perak Triathlon @ Marina Island, which consists of a swim, a bike ride and a run, is one of the most awaited sporting events this year. After two years of a break due to the pandemic, it was great to finally see last weekend that 900 triathletes get to do their beloved event in beautiful weather! 🏊🏽♀️ 🚴🏼♂️ 🏃🏾♀️
The event saw 2 main categories of participants who competed in the Olympic distance (a 1.5km sea swim, 40km cycle and 10km run) and the Sprint distance (a 750m sea swim, 20km cycle and 5km run) strongly kept their motivation going as they fight to the finish line! What a fantastic achievement.
As the venue sponsor, Marina Island was proud to share another successful event with our amazing organiser, XS Elite Performance led by Mr Toto Ong. We are also very delighted to have the presence of Tuan Shamsul Ridzuan Bin Idris, Pegawai Daerah Manjung who flagged off the swimming event in the morning as well as the presence of YDH Toh Seri Vijaya Lt. Kol. Dato’ Shaharudin bin Haji Nazari, Orang Besar Jajahan Manjung, Tuan Syed Yahya Syed Othman, Senior Director, Strategic Planning Division Tourism Malaysia and Tuan Muhammad Akmal Bin Maradzi, Executive Director of Marina Island who celebrated the triathletes at the prize-giving ceremony.
HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to all PODIUM WINNERS and the RACE FINISHERS, you are all CHAMPIONS!
Marina Island would also like to take this opportunity to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Zion Ho Chee Cheong who passed away at the Seri Manjung Hospital on the day of the event. May his soul rest in peace.
