About the project

"My name is Charles Rozoy, I’am 28 and I would like to exchange my Olympic medal for the use back of my left arm. I know it is impossible... But I know it will not stop me to have a great life."

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Senior swimmer until 2008, a motorcycle accident paralyzed his left arm... Charles decided to hang on to his dream and became Paralympic Champion in the 100M Butterfly at the London 2012 Olympics.

Today's new challenge is to finance the preparation for Rio and more specifically a training camp in Miami.

Why Miami? : It has the same time zone as Rio and equivalent temperatures. It is a good place to work in ideal conditions for the Paralympic Games, Rio 2016.

Why Nemo? : This is the nickname of Charles, the swimmer has a "fin" similar to the little fish Nemo. But like Nemo is full of courage to face the challenges of life.

Why a Challenge? Charles launches his crowdfunding project and he proposes you compete in the challenge #NemoRioChallenge which involves swimming 50 meters with only one arm!

Charles Rozoy Swimming 30 yso

"One is not born a swimmer, but becomes one". Since the age of 7, this sentence motivates me and helps me strive to be the best.

To realise my childhood dream of "becoming Olympic Champion" I joined the Alliance Dijon Natation from primary school, and then in later life attended the College of Lentillères, here I discovered daily workouts, Monday to Saturday, and the correct physical preparation. Finally I joined the Hope Pole and the Lycée Jean-Marc Boivin to read for my degree for 4 years and to keep training at the highest level.

Attempting to become World Champion, I struggled to achieve consistent good results at important competitions. After some hard losses, a new challenge emerged in my life. I decided to focus on my studies and my life as a whole and leave the pool for a while. A year later however I made my return to competition.

The day everything changed: the accident

Everything was going well for me, my swimming, my studies, I felt I was finally becoming the man I was supposed to become. Then in July 2008, I had a motorcycle accident that brought my promising career to an abrupt end.

After several weeks of hospitalisation, I discovered that my left arm was paralysed, and that even with several operations, my arm would recover very little mobility.

After several months of recovery, I would make my return to the pool, firstly for my rehabilitation, and then on a bet with my coach Sylvain Freville, He wanted me to begin training again, and this is when we realised that disability sport would be my route to return to competition.

I now swim with only my right arm.

Since 2009, through training, rehabilitation and competition, I have managed to compete and win on both a national and international stage, and in turn have managed to fulfil my childhood dream: "Becoming Olympic champion"
