Saturday 27.07.2019: the chain of disability, unwavering solidarity

Amputated with both arms, the Dauphin Corse, as it is nicknamed, has crossed Lake Geneva in its length. An unwavering supporter of the "Sepas impossible" Association, which helps people with multiple sclerosis, Frenchman Thierry Corbalan was swimming hard to reach Geneva. The elements of Lake Geneva when they go wild ... !

An extraordinary challenge for an extraordinary man.

"The challenge of my 60 spring took me on an unforgettable adventure, 60 kilometers in Lake Geneva that showed us all these facets. The calm to begin with but as the well-known expression was the calm before the storm that the whole team, (kayak, paddle, boats) had to face during 4 hours of night. The sunrise showed us a less hostile lake and the sight of Geneva and its jet of water was the reward of so much effort. It is after 9 p.m. swim that I hit the beach accompanied by friends and the president of the association Sepas Impossible. The public is large but I will not be able to share the arrival because following a small discomfort caused by verticalization after many hours lying I am taken to the hospital for a check to reassure my entourage. I'll come out quickly to find my team and celebrate the feat. »
