Arthur. The fifth member of Team Peak Performance at the Adventure Racing World Championships in Ecuador 2014.

Traversing hundreds of miles through various terrain, climates, environments and multiple disciplines, it is more often a race of survival than time across a finish line. 

In 2014, Mikael Lindnord and his team from Sweden traveled to Ecuador for the Adventure Racing World Championships representing their country and their sponsor Peak Performance. A stage for world class athletes from around the world, this race wasn't just another competition; it was a career changing pursuit vying for the title of World Champions. 

However, what started out as a team effort of 4, quickly took an unexpected turn when an unlikely 5th teammate joined them on day four of the race. 

Arthur's story is nothing short of heroic and miraculous as he comes face to face with Mikael Lindnord, the team captain for Peak Performance- the man whose heart matched his own.
