Laguna Phuket Attracts Elite Professionals
The Thai Airways Laguna Phuket Triathlon defending champion Craig Alexander is confirmed to race at the event again this year on Sunday 4 December. Alexander, from Australia, will be coming off recent wins at the US$500,000 Life Time Fitness Triathlon in Minneapolis and the 5430 Long Course Triathlon in Boulder, Colorado where, with an eight-minute lead, he managed to stop and kiss his baby daughter Lucy, and then carry her across the finish line. Alexander is hoping for his third win at Laguna Phuket having taken home the title in 2004 and 2002.
