Terence Parkin to compete in Tritanium 2019

Terence Parkin is an inspirational athlete. He is a Sydney Olympic 2000 200m breastroke silver medalist and 29 times gold medalist at the Deaflympics, making him the highest medal winner in the history of the Deaflympics since its inception in 1929.

Terence currently works for the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, teaching deaf children and adults about water safety and CPR.

Given that Terence has done two of his own extreme challenges – 902km and 1120km cycling, swimming, running and canoeing from Johannesburg to Durban – he is well prepared for the upcoming TriTanium endurance race. 

“I am very excited to be part of this event.  It challenges one as a multi-sportsperson and the body to adapt to different sports.  I have always been a great fan of multi-sport and taking one’s body to the extreme as is evident in my own 1120km challenges over 2 weeks.  I think that TriTanium makes for great participation over a wide range of athletic abilities.”  Terence Parkin – Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation Ambassador
