Dive master, sky diver, marathon runner, martial arts champion, philanthropist, venture capitalist, adventure racer, chef... KWIK is also the first Chinese to have raced the Gobi, the Sahara, the Atacama and the South Pole—representing world's hottest, driest, highest, and coldest deserts. His accomplishments also include ten-day non-stop expedition race in Eco-Challenge Sabah 2000, which he completed with the soles of his feet literally falling off. "Pain is temporary, but quitting lasts forever." KWIK is also a motivation speaker. "Do or not do, there is no try," he mantras.
Derek KWIK will share how he developed his interest in sports and built his confidence when he was a kid, how he plans and overcomes each long distance adventure, and what his training and adventures mean to him as a person.
