The world in the palm of his hand

After winning a second Paralympic gold medal at Rio in 2016, Damien Seguin then took his combination of grit, strategic brilliance and infectious bonne humeur to the Vendée Globe. Whether you smiled at his Captain Hook stunt, marvelled at his ability to be always in the right place or had to pinch yourself when he crossed the line less than 24 hours after Charlie Dalin’s super-speedy Apivia, you will undoubtedly have been impressed by his journey.
