It’s been revealed that mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor will join team Notorious for The Crossing: Calvi – Monaco Water Bike Challenge, in a not-so surprising announcement on Thursday.
The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight and lightweight champion was spotted water bike training alongside Princess Charlene in Corsica in July, so the only questions remaining was which team would Conor McGregor join? Considering his nickname is ‘The Notorious’, it comes as no surprise that he will be one of four members of team Notorious, lead by Princess Charlene’s brother and General Secretary of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, Gareth Wittstock.
The Princess’ Foundation revealed earlier this week that Yannick Angel, French swimmer and Ambassador of the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation, will join team Serenity with the Princess.
The remaining team members are still to be revealed.
The crossing is due to take place on 12th and 13th September and aims to raise awareness about drowning prevention and the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation’s work on water safety around the world.
The latest survey by IMSEE has revealed that the business climate continued to weaken in July, though retail trade and the auto commerce and repair sectors saw slight improvements.
