Thai media define crystal clear lagoons as the best training place for triathlon29 December, 2017 / News
Bangkok Post, one of the main newspapers in Thailand, dedicated an article to the project that Crystal Lagoons plans to develop in that country to improve triathlete training. The complex would be developed within the framework of an agreement with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) that drives the Amazing Thailand Tourism Year 2018 campaign.
TAT’s Amazing Thailand Tourism Year 2018 focuses on sports tourism, opening up opportunities for business owners such as Crystal Lagoons to build or enhance projects that allows the practice of different sports.
“Thailand has held many international triathlon races, including in Phuket, Hua Hin and Pattaya, but it is quite challenging to find the perfect training facility in Bangkok. Crystal Lagoons develops large artificial lagoons with the highest quality of water, which are the perfect place for athletes, because it allows them to train in a safe and controlled environment” said Jaime Rivera, Crystal Lagoons’ regional director for Southeast Asia.
The Crystal Lagoons will also improve the quality of life for society, families, and athletes.
“The project would allow athletes to practice for a race in a tropical beach environment right in the capital city. The project could also be used by visitors looking for exciting aqua entertainment, including underwater spinning workouts, or aquabikes”, Mr. Rivera added.
In 2018 Thailand is projected to log 3.1 trillion baht (local currency) in tourism revenue, Tourism Authority of Thailand said.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
