Mission Accomplished! 100km in 34 hours

July 2, 2021

Congratulations to our Primary School PE Teacher, Paul Georgescu, for completing his 100km ultramarathon swim at the Lia Manoliu Olympic Pool on June 30, in a time of 34 hours, 42 minutes, and 46 seconds.

Paul was swimming to raise awareness of Autism and support for Centrul Aspera, the first centre in Romania offering a multidisciplinary therapeutic approach for children on the autistic spectrum.

Battling fatigue and sleep deprivation through the later stages of his swim, Paul still managed a beaming smile for the many who turned out to cheer him on as he counted down the final laps, thanking all those who came along to show their support and to those who made a donation.

Paul is a wonderful ambassador of the IBSB Student Mission: Aspire, Strive, Achieve, and a compelling reminder to us all that even the seemingly impossible can be achieved with hard work and unfaltering determination.
