Marc Herremans Belgian Triathlete. Former Ironman to World Champion Para-Triathlon Ironman
Marc Herremans of Belgium, famed triathlete who was paralyzed in 2002 in a training accident and recovered to win the handcycle division at the Ironman World Championship in 2006, suffered second and third degree burns in his legs after spilling a hot water jug.
