Christophe, who dreams of swimming at the Olympics, said what kept him going during the challenge was the songs he sang to himself and the thought of the encouragement he received on social media.

“I held on singing songs to myself, thinking about the encouragement I received on social media."

He admitted that he was hungry at times and wanted to stop because he was tired but he told himself that he had to keep swimming.
