The first Bali International Triathlon was arranged in 2007. Each year BIMC Hospital has sponsored the event by providing a medical support on standby for the international sporting event. This is the one of the largest international sporting events held on the island of Bali.
This year marks the 5th Bali International Triathlon. The event was held on 26th June 2011 at Jimbaran Bay. With more than 200 participants, the event was officially open and started at 7am. Categories included: Olympic Distance Course, a Sprint Distance Course followed by a 5km fun run race.
BIMC Hospital provided an ambulance on stand by, a first response emergency motorbike which followed the participants along the course, and 2 temporary clinics which were set up at the Four Seasons and InterContinental Bali Resort beach areas.
The weather was overcast on the day, which was mostly favourable to the contestants. A few participants needed to visit the BIMC medical tents seeking medical attention for minor ailments. Thankfully there were no major injuries throughout the race making the event yet another success!
