LOU & TIGNES

Lou is 20. For two years he has been suffering from the most severe form of Lyme disease and has lost the use of his legs. Although now confined to a wheelchair, Lou decided to fight back and realise his dreams using sport as his driving force. Lou Braz-Dagand faces a daily struggle against the Lyme disease that he contracted unexpectedly in 2014: "In two days I’d lost my vision, the ability to speak and the use of my arms and legs." Lou is doing better these days thanks to medical treatments: "Now it’s just my legs that no longer work,” he says, smiling.


But he certainly doesn’t want to be pitied. Lou found refuge in trying out a variety of adaptive sports like sit-skiing, wheelchair athletics and using an all-terrain wheelchair and lives each day with a smile and a sense of humour. Continually motivated and enterprising, he has chosen Tignes to accompany him on a journey that may one day lead to his ultimate ambition: taking part in the Paralympic Games in 2022!


Tignes is delighted to count Lou Braz-Dagand as a Tignes Ambassador alongside Guerlain Chicherit, Marie Martinod, Flo Bastien and Charles Navillod.
