91.5FM delivers LIVE outside broadcast.

By admin  //  Events, Phuket News  //  No Comments

On Sunday, December 5 91.5FM – Phuket Island Radio pulled of another first in a year of firsts when we broadcasted the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship Triathlon live from Laguna Phuket.

A total of 746 competitors from 51 countries lined up at the start of the race at 7am ahead of the 1.9km swim, 90km bike and 21.1km run.

Our coverage of the race started at 9am just before the first athletes completed the bike course and went all the way through until 12.30 after the medal ceremonies for the professional men and women.

Commentary duties were overseen by Whit Raymond, MC for the Ironman 70.3, plus Danny O and DJ Doris.

As race caller, Whit was dealing with the incoming runners and riders so Danny O and Doris kept themselves busy by interviewing gathered spectators and Laguna Phuket staff and also managed to get to talk to several of the athletes who spoke after completing the race.

Among those who found the time to talk to us was men’s champion Tim O’Donnell of the USA, Switzerland’s Caroline Steffan who was crowned women’s champion, Massimo Cigana of Italy and crowd favourite Belinda Granger of Australia.

“PIMEX 2011 is really shaping up to set a new benchmark this year,” said Andy Dowden, Show Director, Informa Yacht Group, “The range and number of boats on display is greater than you’ll find anywhere else in Asia and when you combine this with all of the exhibitors in the Hall and the luxury automobile companies also taking part, PIMEX 2011 will truly be a lifestyle show like no other.”
