April 2012, Joeri, Tom, Jan and Didier were sitting on a table…place: Luberon, France … Trainingcamp …there it was where 4 totally different types of athletes met eachother with all respect for everyone’s goals and mindsets…at that moment Didier was a beginning Long Distance Triathlete…suddenly he spoke up…’I have a dream’…and he told about his dream.
There was silence when he was telling about his dream, respect for someone who dares searching the limits. At that moment, Didier his shape was still building up and he was working towards his first Ironman in Zurich (Switzerland)…that made his dream even more challenging.
Now about his dream, doing the Arch to arc triathlon, running from London to Dover, swimming a bit in the ‘channel’ and biking from Calais to Paris…Crazy shizzle it seemed, but from that conversation on, Didier his mind was definitely set on realizing that Dream and we start working towards this goal.
End of august this year he is doing the challenge!
Didier is doing this for SOS Kinderdorpen and you can support this organisation here http://www.sos-kinderdorpen.be/node/6790/6787/193/sponsor/6787/193/sponsors
All of this is combined with a busy professional life and his supporting team: 2kids and his wife Evelyn.
In this movie Didier explains about his challenge and work-sports combination.
One of following weeks, we will interview Didier…to meet up with him and get personal!
