Incomedia Supports Guinness World Record Attempt
Incomedia to sponsor KeepBrave – an attempt to be the fastest woman to cycle round the world by Italian athlete Paola Gianotti to beat the Guinness World Record
Ivrea (TO) March, 21st 2014 – Incomedia, a leading independent developer and publisher of multimedia software for the PC, is sponsoring Paola Gianotti that left from Ivrea on her bicycle on March, 8th to pedal around the world and gain her very special place in the Guinness World Record books.
Paola is only the second woman worldwide, to attempt such a demanding challenge. She aims to cover 30 thousand kilometres, cross 22 countries on 5 different continents and must do this within 152 days in order to beat the world record currently held by a Greek lady Juliana Buringh.
After months of rigorous preparation and hard training, Paola Gianotti will begin the trip from Acqui Terme then head to Nice and on to all other cities along the route as agreed with the Guinness World Record committee. Paola will use the “Keep Brave’’ event to promote projects related to environmental protection, health, lawfulness and awareness of different cultures. Experiences on the attempt will be recorded daily in her Blog which has been created with WebSite X5 and published on www.keepbrave.websitex5.com, as well as on her own social profiles.
“We are very happy to be a sponsor of Paola’s adventure. We believe in her and in her chances” says Federico Ranfagni CEO of Incomedia, who explains “This isn’t just about sports, it’s about a huge challenge and dream. We also thought that we could start off our business from Ivrea to then reach the entire world with our WebSite X5 software. We did not have to pedal with our bike, but it did take a great effort to achieve results anyway. The secret lies in the motto that Paola has chosen – Keep Brave, persevere and never give up because dreams can sometimes come true.”
