He’s not just any ordinary old man with a trishaw in Chinatown. This amazing guy has just cycled for two years, all the way from South East Asia (I think he started near Malaysia) to London, to take part in London 2012.
His story is covered on BBC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-18980693
Today, I had the privilege of meeting this amazing person. He doesn’t brag about his achievement, it just seems like something ordinary that he’s doing. He talked about cultured Europeans, the conflict in middle east, the heat in SEA and the cold in Turkey. All through his journey, he slept in his trishaw, no matter the heat or the cold.
He’s from Jiangsu.
He plans to attend Rio 2016 Olympic. I think he said he was going to take a boat to the North American Continent, with his tricycle and then probably cycle from there to South America. I wish him the best of luck.
