Inspirational National Volleyball Team Coach Christian Zepp, who led Cambodia’s sporting heroes to World #3 in the 2007 WOVD Cambodia Standing Volleyball World Cup, will swim 50km in 50 hours on 14-16 August to raise sponsorship for the Pailin Frechen Lions 2009 Cellcard National Volleyball League team.
Stadt Frechen, Christian Zepp’s hometown in Germany is proud to possess one of the oldest and best maintained swimming pools in the country and in 2008, Christian swam an amazing 40.7km in a competition designed to save the historic sports facility. His cash prize for winning the 2008 event was presented by the Mayor of Stadt Frechen who increased the amount in recognition of Christian donating his award to sponsor the Pailin Frechen Lions volleyball team.
In 2009, Christian hopes to smash his previous record by swimming a mind-boggling 50km in just 50 hours to ensure the Pailin Frechen Lions continue to Stand Up in the 2009 Cellcard National Volleyball League.
Revered by Cambodians for his outstanding contribution to the National Volleyball Team during the 2007 WOVD Cambodia Standing Volleyball World Cup, Christian has called for all citizens of Frechen to sponsor him for any amount they can afford in his efforts to support the athletes with a disability from Pailin, one of the most landmine affected areas of Cambodia.
The CNVLD requests the good citizens of Frechen to Stand Up alongside their heroic son in his outstanding efforts for the Athletes with a Disability of Cambodia and looks forward to welcoming Herr Zepp back to Phnom Penh in October 2009.
