The Malaysian contingent will be represented by Riki Shinozuka and Ryan Tan in the men’s while Irene Chong and Zoe Bowden will feature in the women’s category. Both categories will be racing the same distances, but will start at different times.

These Elite triathletes from Southeast Asia are expected to finish within 2 hours and 10 minutes, so don’t be late! Roads will be closed by 7:00am so best to get to the Water Sports Complex early by 6:30am.

See you there!
