Richard (Drilly) Thornton, President
Hi there and a personal welcome to the HK Dragons - the most fun Tri Club in HK - with the best looking kit.
I only started doing tri's a few years back, my first race was an Olympic Distance event in Hong Kong in September 2007.
A friend had put me up to it, I joined the Dragons, and they got me hooked. I did a few of their summer tri events and loved it, for the racing, the fun and the new group of people I had met.
Since then, I have clearly become more involved and with the rest of the Committee, hope to offer all of you an enjoyable atmosphere to train in, with a race calendar to keep all of you entertained throughout the year.
I look forward to meeting you.

A recent change of job and family situation has made it hard to get into a good routine for training. (Probably a situation that resonates with lots of Hong-Kongers!) My goal for this season is to maintain consistent training and racing so that I remain competitive in events. We all have our rivals that we need to finish ahead of :)
Mike Maiers, Treasurer and Race Co-ordinator
I have been a member with the Hong Dragons ever since I moved to HK five years ago. Since becoming a member of the committee 3 years ago, I have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming and watching current and new members strive to achieve their personal goals in Triathlon and multisport. I am currently a Personal Trainer and come from a track runners background (400m & 800m) and have loved the transition of becoming a triathlete.

In 2000, my company convinced me to do the BRW Corporate Triathlon while I was living in Sydney. On a dodgy bike, with no triathlon experience, I agreed to join. Ten years later, I find myself still doing triathlon having covered all race distances and still love the comraderie and sportsmanship that goes with this wonderful sport that we're all involved in.
