Kaï lives in the care home Ten Dries. He has one big dream: participating in a real triathlon race and crossing that finish line! Kaï has been an active member of our Triple Challenge Club since last year. Club member Wannes will join him and guide him through the challenge. Together they have been training intensively for months to take part in the Half Triathlon in Lievegem.
For months now Kaï and Wannes have been preparing themselves for the triathlon competition of Bro.Go. Like real triathletes, they followed an intense training schedule and leaved nothing to chance. How did they manage?
Kai can swim a little, but not enough to complete 1.9 km. With the help of a bellyak (a kayak on which you have to lie down) he manages. Wannes dives into the water and Kaï paddles along. The orange buoy is his anchor point. A guide follows them from a kayak.
The Belgian paralympic medal team Griet en Anneleen make their tandem available to our hero! Wannes is at the wheel and Kaï follows every movement Wannes makes. That is not so easy for Kai and we keep our fingers crossed that he can finish the 90 km🤞. They train hard and systematically build up the volume towards the race. After some solid training rides they reach an average of 30 km/h and a top speed of 44.5 km/h!
This is the toughest part for Kai. Walking is not so easy for Kai and he gets pain in his knees very quickly. Running a half marathon will not be possible. But they found a solution... Kaï jumps into the wheelchair that Wannes pushes and he runs 500 metres at the end of each lap. But our hero will certainly finish on foot and full of enthusiasm. Step on the gas Kai, you can do it! 💪
**One thing is certain. Our Triple Challenge Hero will melt your heart 🥰.
Encourage him and come and support him along the route, you will make him very happy!
