10.06.2014 – Mike welcomes the German Football team on board Pangaea for a day of sailing and motivation in preparation for the 2014 Fifa World Cup!
Mike talks about his last expeditions and relates his challenges to the challenges when competing for the World Cup. He reunites the players as a team and not only as individuals – a big plus when going out for the win!!
The German football Team were taken back by Mike’s motivational stories and his amazing willpower, endurance and determination to overcome each challenge faced before him. It’s been a valuable learning curve for everybody involved and one in which will be repeated shortly as Mike will return soon to Brasil to assist the team as they get closer to winning the Cup.
Germany captain Philipp Lahm was impressed, saying it was “incredible what the human body can achieve.”
Lahm said the presentation by the South African-born Swiss explorer showed that “we must be well prepared, and have to respect the opponent.”
