Elisa, Maxence, Ange-Paul and Remi had the happiness of sharing the life of hunters from Greenland on the North Ouest in bay of Disko.

Extract of the Expedition Diary.
Travelling is not changing of country but changing of world and here it is frankly a different planet. Here Men could seem cold and hard to liaise with them but it is the opposite. I think they take us for real handicapped people, not those that are missing a part but to those civilization of the South who are only wining. While in the abundancy countries are crying, here they are living.

That is all.

With other members of the association, he developed a piloting aid in order to help blind pilots to be as autonomus as possible. The device was tested on a complete flight without the security instructor having to intervene or to give any information to the blind pilot at any time.

> An amputee runs a marathon in Afghanistan

Categories : ehandicap world records, Sport, Coup de coeur


Photo

In the name of freedom, Charlie Lewis, an amputee from London, took part in his first marathon in 2014 : it was in Afghanistan. He now runs in countries throughout the world where freedom is under threat, proving that he is alive and well.
Ten years after a serious skiing accident, and 60 operations later, Charlie Lewis realised that the only way he would ever walk (and run) again was to have his leg amputated. On November 4th 2016, the 31-year-old Londoner was in the line-up for the start of the Bamiyan marathon, in Central Afghanistan.
18 months ago, with an artificial leg in the form of a prosthetic blade, Charlie Lewis took up running again, starting off with the half-marathon in Pyongyang, North Korea – a country “deprived of liberty” said Charlie, who by then felt that he had recovered his own freedom. Bamiyan was his first marathon, and he was terribly afraid that he wouldn’t be able to finish. “I knew that I would be in pain after 20 kilometres, with the blade rubbing against my knee, so I brought some painkillers with me, and I planned to take a break from time to time”, he said. Charlie finally came in second, out of a hundred or so competitors. His next challenge (he hopes, as he still needs to find sponsors) will be the Bagdad marathon, in the spring. He aims to be able to achieve a time of less than three hours by 2018. “I’ll need a special blade in order to do that, and it won’t come cheaply. But running is what makes me feel alive”, he concluded.

Just like any other professional reporter, Joao Maia took fabulous photos of the 2016 Paralympic Games while on site in Rio de Janeiro.

The only difference is, that he is blind.

« I don’t need to be able to see in order to take photos : my eyes are in my heart », said the Brazilian photographer.

When you see him at work in the Olympic Stadium in Rio, you might be forgiven for wondering whether he really is blind, or whether the most important things in life are hidden from our sight, as Antoine de Saint-Exupery wrote, in The Little Prince….

Sans oublier Nasser Al Attiyah, vainqueur de cette édition.

Trust is Building up
La Baja, represent 600 km in 3 steps. The equivalent of one day in Dakar rave. On the beginning of the 9 first KM of Day I, I have to admit that I was not very at eayse admits Philippe Croizon. A lot of pression as I took conscience that I was getting myself into an enourmous challenge and that I was racing with the best. At the end of this first step, he is indeed at the bottom of the race ranking list. The next day, he has to step up his game : 2 stretches of 200 KM each. “It was already getting better but I was not at the top of my capacities” continues Philippe. I had a hard time to push the pedal and increase the gaz level in the straight lines to 160 km/h”
The dirt, montagneaous and dry does not allow for any hesitation: dirt, sand, and rocks, mostly rocks. And the suffocating heat gives an overview of one of the main constraint of the Dakar…
