Congratulations Charlotte and Tanguy

The 18th International Congress of Speleology was held in the heart of Savoie, on the shores of Lac du Bourget, France, and attended by Charlotte, Tanguy, Gabi and Gina. Charlotte and Tanguy worked incredibly hard all week as volunteers and still had the energy to win several major competitions.

Charlotte won both the Women's Speleo Olympics as well as the Best Poster Award (again!)
Tanguy won the crate stacking challenge with a whopping 22 crates

We also presented some great science and exploration...
