One thing Chris McCormack, Executive Chairman, Thanyapura Phuket and 4 x Triathlon World Champion learned on his way to the top of the sport of triathlon is that life’s a learning curve and he’s very grateful he finished his education before choosing a life of sport.
He wants to let our community know that Thanyapura together with their sister school, Phuket International Academy, are launching an Elite Junior Sport Academy programme coupled with an IB World School education and state-of-art residential boarding facilities, to give talented young athletes a chance to pursue their dreams while achieving a higher education.
Thanyapura is Asia’s premier sports training destination featuring cutting-edge facilities and a progressive approach to the mind and body that is needed to get the very best out of an athlete. It’s an all-round approach to excellence in education and sport, body and mind, health and wellness, complemented by an expansive sports and educational campus set in a pristine, tropical environment.
Until 30 April 2014, they are accepting applications for full and partial sports scholarships to enter their Elite Junior Swimming, Triathlon and Tennis Academies that will see gifted athletes streamed into elite international sporting colleges upon successful completion of their secondary education.
Open to all students aged 13 to 18, Thanyapura’s boarding school offers a solid foundation in education, sport and emotional growth, with access to the best teachers and coaches without compromising lifestyle or security.
