DEP and MRICRH Students train with Ironman Mark Allen

From April 26-29, 2008, two MRICRH students and three DEP students had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train with 6-time Ironman Champion Mark Allen.

The Olympic Solidarity training program for Coaches and Athletes was held at the Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok. The event was attended by student athletes and coaches from all over Southeast Asia. Mark Allen provided training in swimming, biking and running over the course of this three day workshop.

The DEP and MRICRH students that attended have already demonstrated that they are great athletes but the training that they received during this workshop could take them to the next level of their sport. One of the MRICRH students even won the grand prize drawing during the closing ceremony and will now receive personal on-line training from Mark Allen.

We are very proud of all the students that attended and hope that they can use what they have learned from this experience.
