The French quadruple amputee Philippe Croizon & the able-bodied ” Arnaud Chassery” will cross the Red Sea from Taba ( Egypt) to Aqaba ( Jordan) to connect the Two continent Africa & Asie.
The Two Swimmers are joining forces & courage to meet an incredible challenge: connecting 5 continents with 4 swims aiming to convey a genuine message of peace & solidarity among people of these five continents, regardless of origin or culture. They also plan to show that today, there should no longer be any difference made between the able-bodied & people with disabilities.
