Members of the British sprint swim team have been training at the Thanyapura Sports and Leisure Club (TSLC) in Phuket’s Thalang district – the latest world-class sports team to make use of the Thanyapura’s sports training facility.

Amongst the swimmers who flew out to Thailand for the training programme were two-times world champion and world record holder Liam Tancock, Olympian Grant Turner, and European and Commonwealth champions Fran Halsall and Amy Smith.

As well as undertaking a vigorous training regime during their stay, the British swimmers adopted TSLC’s ethos of preparing young athletes for sporting excellence by helping coach the facility’s junior swim team, Silverfinz.

“It’s been a real pleasure hosting the British team. They have made a great impression on the management and staff at Thanyapura, as well as the parents of our Silverfinz kids,” said Craig Johns, Thanyapura SLC’s Sports Academy director.

The British team said they selected Thanyapura as a training centre because of its Olympic-standard 50-metre swimming pool, renowned sports science facilities and idyllic location surrounded by the mountains of Phuket.
