This is the month people look back over their year and see the things they’ve been most happy about and the things they want to change for next year.
While it hasn’t been the best year for me athletically, I’m really proud of what we’ve accomplished with Thanyapura Sports Resort, the MX online training platform, and the Bahrain Endurance Team.
It is the eve of the first Ironman event in the Middle East. Daniela Ryf is on the cusp of history; if she wins this third race of the Triple Crown she claims a million-dollar bonus, unprecedented in this sport. Jan Frodeno has become the first person to win both an Olympic gold and an Ironman World Championship. The Bahrain Endurance Team has made its mark on all the key long-distance races and I cannot wait for what we have in store for next year.
Thanyapura has been named Asia’s Leading Sports Resort by the World Travel Awards, a testament to the hard work by everyone here to constantly keep raising the bar in the services we deliver.
MX has grown what it offers out into customized triathlon training programs and coaching to help you find personal success in this sport, while still remaining true to our core community of passionate athletes. It’s been a year of tremendous growth and change and I can only be thankful for that.
