Arnaud began his sport journey as a young road cyclist in which he competed at the elite-international level.
At 22 years old he was a victim of a deficient explosive device in the Swiss army, and he lost half of his right hand.
This accident reshuffled the cards. Driven by a child memory of the Ironman Hawaii television broadcast, he started swimming and training for long distance triathlon.
His love for the three disciplines never stopped growing and his constant progress never satisfied his voracious appetite. After two participations at the Ironman World Championship in Kona as an age-grouper, Arnaud is now committed to take things to the next level.
