Orange Room Asia going global with sports property trifactor, powered by technology
As the world recovers from the pandemic, Orange Room Asia is excited to make some mega announcements with new technology, new race formats and a new TriFactor World Championship location.
“The pandemic has made us realise the importance of health and in this time, we have pivoted and developed new technologies with the aim of helping people improve their quality of life through health and fitness. Through our new programmes and innovations, we seek to impact more than 1 million people around the world by 2025,” said Elvin Ting, co-founder of Orange Room Asia that owns the TriFactor brand.
He added, “Fundamental to our new direction was the support of Sport Singapore and their various Blended initiatives that allowed sport to continue to grow under the changing circumstances and we are excited to share our new developments with the world.”
TriFactor World Championship 2022 to be held in Maldives
The TriFactor Asian Championship Series, which first started in 2009, will be held in 9 countries this year – Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea and China – including a brand new TriFactor World Championship race venue at the beautiful magnificent paradise of Maldives, South Asian island based in the Indian Ocean. Previously, all the TriFactor World Championship editions were held at China.
This is an incredible opportunity to swim, cycle and run in the archipelago of the Maldives, a stunning destination of coralline islands with crystalline turquoise waters, white beaches, blue lagoons, colorful marine life and swaying palm trees all under the limitless azure blue skies. Many of the Maldives’ 1,200 islands are under serious threat from rising sea levels and erosion; hence Orange Room aims to bring awareness to this issue, to urge the community to do their part and save the environment.
To be held in November later this year, the TriFactor World Championship will have two categories – Elite and Age Group. The Elite category, which will have an attractive prize purse, is only via qualification – athletes need to finish in the Top 3 of their age group at any races in the TriFactor Asian Championships Series or Top 3 in a World Triathlon-sanctioned race. Age groupers can simply sign up for the race, but the slots are limited to just 300.
TriFactor introduces new race formats
Another addition to the race format is the TriFactor Asia Cup, which will be held in Vietnam later this year, where the best of the region will compete for the titles of Asia Champion. A new event dedicated entirely for kids only, TriFactor Kids will be making its debut this July at Gardens By The Bay, in collaboration with Kiztopia. It will involve a 1km and 3km run for children, on top of a carnival of fun and games.
After receiving feedback from participants, a feeder series called T.R.A.C. (Train – Recover – Assess – Complete) has been created to serve as a stepping stone towards the main TriFactor races. Consisting of shorter and simpler events, the T.R.A.C. series will give people the opportunity to set milestones in their training and prepare for the races.
New technologies created to help people live better
Working in tandem with the T.R.A.C series is LevelUP, a brand new app that aims to take one’s fitness to the next level. There are coaching programmes provided in the app that one can follow to lead up to a T.R.A.C. event, or it can help to match you to a coach based on your needs and preferences to create a customised programme for you. There are also physical training sessions across eight locations in Singapore that you can sign up for.
Further enhancing one’s quality of life and training, Orange Room Asia will be opening a physical space called the Human Performance Lab which has professional testing facilities – typically only available to elite athletes – to help you understand your body better to achieve optimal health and performance.
All of these exciting new initiatives from Orange Room Asia are launched with the objective of improving people’s quality of life by equipping them with various health and fitness tools.
