Alaska teamTBB launch – Dusit Thani Hotel, Manila, Philippines

Wednesday April 18, 2012

Early Wednesday we all piled in to a big bus at the end of Team Camp at Pico de Loro to head to Manila for our Team launch.  This was an amazing event held at the Dusit Thani Hotel.

It was a major media event with national and regional press and media crews, lifesize posters of athletes, video and slide presentations, and visionary speeches highlighting the importance of the teamTBB launch to the development of triathlon as a sport in the Philippines.

The most exciting thing was seeing the media ask the development squad  “kids” questions, and hearing their responses. Such a great opportunity for these 6 promising athletes.

Special thanks to Fred Uytengsu, Alex Bok, Brett Sutton and David Almendral for establishing such a great project here to benefit young athletes in the Philippines.
