Extreme swimmers…

Thierry Corbalan, the « Corsican Dolphin », has started training in Porticcio for a new, extraordinary challenge : swimming in Greenland, in the coldest waters on Earth (-1.8°), to raise funds for Pascal Olmeta’s association “A smile, and hope for life”.

Frank Bruno, the “hopping adventurer”, will be there to assure the swimmer’s safety. Clad in a skin diving suit, he’ll be on hand to step in at any moment. Thierry will be wearing a 7mm damp suit and his monofin. Two children will be accompanying them in their circuit near the North Pole, and meeting the local Inuits.

The challenge will begin on April 23rd, and our friends will be back in Corsica on May 3rd next, to tell us about their adventures.
