Sponsor: Our coverage of the Laguna Lăng C - Vietnam Airlines Triathlon 2013 is sponsored by Laguna Lăng C - Vietnam's first and largest world-class integrated resort. Aiming to build on the success of its sister event, the legendary Laguna Phuket Triathlon, the Laguna Lăng C Triathlon will comprise a 1.8-km swim, a 62-km bike ride and a 12-km run. There will also be a duathlon consisting of a 6-km run, a 62-km bike ride and a 12-km run. A 6-km Fun Run rounds up the race programme. Registration is available at Laguna Lăng C Triathlon.

[HD video below] The inaugural Laguna Lang Co - Vietnam Airlines Triathlon took place on Sunday, 14 April 2013.

Italian Massimo Cigana and Radka Vodickova of the Czech Republic, both three-time Champions of sister event Laguna Phuket Triathlon, made their experience count against an elite pro field that included two-time Ironman World Champion Chris McCormack of Australia, and fellow Australian Ironman veteran Belinda Granger (read more about the results).

The event attracted more than 200 athletes from 28 countries, and Laguna Lang Co is expecting to double that number next year.

ASIATravelTips.com spoke with Mr. Ravi Chandran, Managing Director of Laguna Lang Co, the day after the event - on Monday, to get his thoughts on how it all went, and what areas he is looking to improve for 2014.

Note: It was only after this interview took place that we learned of some of the difficulties that quite a few athletes experienced trying to get home with their bikes. Questions with regards to transportation, visas, Vietnam Airlines' support - or total lack thereof - for the athletes and their equipment, are questions that will be asked in a subsequent interview. We will also be conducting some HD video interviews with a few of the athletes that flew into Vietnam for the Triathlon, so do check back!
