X-Challenge 2014 photos & videos

I'm sorry for being away for so long again...although I've slacked in the past but these few weeks and the coming few weeks will be quite a busy schedule for me and Justine has been getting active lately but I haven't got the time to blog about her activities. Let me briefly blog about them here now:

First of all, for any of her facebook status updates, please refer to this link here:
In fact, she has just updated her facebook status today, go check it out!

Justine Hénin organise un ultra-triathlon pour son association "Justine for kids"
The news link is over here:
Translation by Danielle:
The crazy challenge thrown by Justine Henin for the children: " it is simply to chain 20 triathlons to the continuation "
Justine Henin explained of what consisted "X Challenge", for her charity " Justine For Kids ".
In August 29th, 2014, 21 hour 07
Justine Henin calls on to the sportsmen and to the generous donors to help her charity " Justine For Kids ". The champion throws a baptized ultra-triathlon "X Challenge". " It is a little bit crazy challenge. On the initiative of Ghislain Maréchal, which is an athlete, one ultra a triathlete, it is a discipline of madman, because it is to chain triathlons. X Challenge, it is simply to chain 20 triathlons to the continuation, thus 77 kilometers of swimming, 3600 by bicycle and then 844 on foot. The whole, we hope for it, within 20 days to approach the world record ", she explains to Adel Lassouli's microphone.
Take children in Lapland to meet the Santa Claus
" Ghislain looked for an association, and through a friend, we met. He wanted to be able to collect fund, with this event for the benefit of Justine For Kids, thus we are there to support him, encourage him. Me I admire the athlete, because similar distances, that appears almost just impossible. With these funds, we are going to take sick children in Lapland, on the meeting of the Santa Claus in at the beginning of December ".
You can follow this X Challenge event through this facebook page:

3) Another organization that supports JustineForKid is the "Bikers for Children" which also supports the X-Challenge 2014:
This is the facebook page of the Bikers for Children:

I have combined some of the photos which Danielle has shared from some of the websites and facebook pages here:

JFK and X Challenge collaborated together to fulfill the dreams of some needy children, all for a good cause ^o^
I like how they put up the banner around this pavilion 
Getting ready for the camera
Interview time, media has to involve to spread the news of a good cause, spread the love ya!
The hero before the challenge
Ju is always a natural speaker, look at how composed she is when she's giving her speech!
And always serious about her work and projects~
That guy besides her is called ghislain marechal right? He looked determined to complete the challenge, all the best to him!
This Juju is very charming. She really looks like an experienced speaker, who knows what she's gg to speak without hesitation
Personal interview of Ju, I think the video is showing this part
Looking at Ju's posture, I'm imaging that she's asking him on how to swim effectively without getting too exhausted.
If my above assumptions of her question is true, then this photo would depict the scene where this guy doesn't really know how to answer her
Biker Guy:"Come Justine, I have something to present to you"
Ju:"Oh what is it?"
Ju:"Is it this cute teddy bear?"
Biker Guy:"Nope, it's something even more beneficial for your JFK organisation"
Ju:"Oh really? May I know what it is?"
Biker Guy:"you will know about it later"
Ju:"Ok, meanwhile, let me continue to squeeze this fluffy adorable bear (squish squish)"
Biker Guy:"Alright Ju,  here it is! You can stop squeezing the teddy bear."
Ju:"Oh Wow!"
Let's take a zoom in at Ju's "Oh Wow" expression here (ok, i'm being lame)
Ju:"Let others know of your generosity, let's show them what your Bikers for children organization has given to JFK"
This is not a small amount, it will greatly benefits the projects of JFK
Let us have a full view of the cheque presented to Justine for JustineForKids's project
Biker guy:"Well Justine, do you like this big cheque?"
Ju:"Oh, merci beaucoup! The kids will be very happy to have their dreams fulfilled with this amount! I can't thank you enough!"
Biker Guy:"Then keep it well"
Ju:"Yes, let me roll this up and shall we take a photo afterwards?"
The photo of happy faces!
The photo of happy backs hahaha, I think this photo is to show the Bikers for Children logos and Ju representing JustineForKids Organisation. So I think you get the full picture.

Some serious Juju for you (ya, when she puts her finger on her lips, she's not asking you to be quiet, but rather, she's in some deep thoughts and concentration)
This photo was her getting-ready-to-place-her-finger-on-her-lip photo. She would first do a "V" sign on her chin
And while the camera angle is away from her, she has subconsciously moved her index finger to her lip 
And voila! This is it, sheesh...Ju is trying to concentrate here...
Ju is trying to know how sharp her nose is? Don't worry Ju, you have a perfect nose which I really like.
Guy:"You know the weather doesn't seem to be very good, I hope it won't rain"
Ju:"Hmmm....looking at the misty grey clouds, I suppose even the rain would come to support you too"
Ju:"I think it's time..."
Ju:"The time of the challenge has come, let's go and check if our hero is ready..."
"Where is he?"
"Oh sorry, I'm still eating...I'll need all these energy and the additional support of the Teddy Bear (probably the same one Ju squeezed)"

Alright, let's take some photos before he set out!
Take 1
Take 2
Take 3
Some angle shots
There, one of the brightest smile of Ju in this set of photos
Ju's smile is even more outstanding in this photo, and you know why..oops!
"Alright I'm ready for the challenge, give me some kisses of support, you kids!"
Ju:"You know, I'm still worried it will rain"
Lady on the right:"Oh don't worry, it won't, look at how beautiful the weather it is now"
Oh yes, it's a very beautiful weather and the waters are calm

In the still rained~ but it will not deter the hero from getting his challenges done! Allez!

Here's one of the cutest photo of Justine:
I really love this photo alot, alot!

Sorry if I offend anyone with my lame captions, it was merely for me self entertainment, with this, I ended my post, can't believe it took me quite an amount of time to update with this post, but at least I'm enjoying it because it's about our Juju <3
