Silke Pan turned adversities (an uneasy family situation during her childhood, an eating disorder, and a fall that bound her to a wheelchair) to her advantage.
While in the hospital, Silke bought her first handbike. Six years later she created a world record in a handbike marathon and became a world vice-champion. This summer she accomplished “Raid Pyrénéen” an 800 km long track through the Pyrénées mountains in France.
As if that was not enough, she became “Certified Balloon Artist” and together with her husband created the World’s largest balloon labyrinth in Allaman, Switzerland (in 2016).
This year Silke published her first book “A la conquête de nouveaux sommets” (Conquering New Heights) which is available in Payot libraries in French.
