We, ten Triathletes from Malaysia that had paid the entry fee for the Samui Triathlon 2011, express our heartfelt thanks to the race organisers, Gerald and Fred for refunding to us the entry fee in cash (less Admin Fee) when we visited their office at Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui on 25 April 2011.
We saw their office, it had indeed been affected by the floods. They suffered significant personal loss because of the floods but they "still did the right thing in refunding the entry fee as they want everybody to return next year on 22 April 2012".
Unfortunately in Malaysia when something similar happened, we did not get the refund. So thank you Gerald and Fred.
On a personal level, we the Malaysian Triathletes urge everyone to come for the Triathlon on 22 April 2012. We should support the sport of Triathlon that we love so much. We should support the kind Race organisers. We should support the wonderful warm people of Thailand.
Regards and best wishes
