Robert Traill, the director of Traill International School, Ramkhamheang, this week took a leap forward in his efforts to development world-class athletes in Thailand.
Through his connections in international sports he has persuaded world renowned athletic trainer, performance specialist and sports therapist Marko Yrjovuori to travel to Bangkok.
Yrjovuori has worked with professional athletes and sports teams across the world, including the American professional basketball team LA Lakers. He has worked with sports stars such as Kobe Bryant, James Harden and Pau Gasol.
He has come to Bangkok to join the school's programme and give young athletes the opportunity to develop their talents within Thailand.
Traill said: "I want to see sports men and women from Thailand perform at the highest level, whether it be in the NBA or the English Premiership Football League. I am happy to work with the Sports Authority of Thailand to ensure that this is achieved."
