“For us it is an accomplishment”

Mathieu WOLF, 30, and Daisy CASALS, 33, form the duo of gendarmes "Képis des Sables" which will line up for the first time in the MARATHON DES SABLES. This 37th edition will be an opportunity for these longtime friends to meet again after the chance of changes. The two friends have already managed to share some good sporting moments, for example on the Paris Marathon, or on nature races, but for them, the MDS, it goes beyond: "For us, the MARATHON DES SABLES does not is not a test like the others, it is an accomplishment. »

And this extraordinary event, the duo decided to participate in it for the benefit of sick and disabled children of the Gendarmerie, in connection with the action "to each his moon, to each his dream" carried by the association of "Képis peaches”. And as Mathieu says, “Far from having the build of athletes, we are pumped up to show children that even in difficulty and adversity we can win the moon for them. »

Faced with this extraordinary challenge, the two gendarmes can count on their steely mind; their quasi-military preparation also gives them a good advantage: "We divided up the tasks, I take care of the logistics and Daisy the physical and mental preparation" confides Mathieu.

There is no doubt that this inseparable duo will cross the finish line as one man, and in any case they will "give everything to share moments that we will only experience once in a lifetime and bring moments of joy to the children after the race. »
