Felix has travelled a hard road. Continually overlooked for French national selection, he was often told he didn’t have what it took to make the Olympic Games. So, he made the hard choice to switch to Romania; a nation without a comparable program or funding and which has never sent a triathlete to the Olympics, but with which he might blaze his own trail.
Tokyo is a dream shared with his late mentor Peter Klosz, president of the Romanian Triathlon Federation. Felix has gone into debt to finance his travel and training and has no formal coach, instead studying the sport to coach himself.
With the support of the Pho3nix Foundation, Felix DuChampt will break new ground for his sport, his nation and the next generation of Romanian endurance athletes.
They did not know it was impossible, so they did it.
