When I had to abort my first attempt because of the storm, I was very disappointed and my motivation and energy reached a low. Would I still be able to focus and recharge for another attempt? But that's what sports does to me. It challenges me.
So YES, I went for it again (2 weeks later).
The very first successful crossing of the Belgian coast is in my name as a result. From De Panne to Knokke. 67km in an official time of 23:03:55. This is the biggest, the most beautiful and the most iconic victory of my life, but certainly also the hardest and most difficult I have ever achieved.
I now realize that we can go to the extreme in life, and that is a freedom.
Because dreams give you wings, I decided to donate half of the financial support from supporters,to MAKE-AWISH.
