Silke Pan is a German and Swiss ARTIST, living in Aigle, Switzerland.[1]

Early Life

Silke Pan, a professional Contortionist and Circus performer from 1992 TO 2007 and trained at Berlin's National Circus School, saw her life change dramatically in 2007 after falling from a trapeze.[2][3][1][4]

Since then, she has pursued a successful career as a disabled athlete, allowing her to master her new physique[5][6][3][7] [8]She changed the page to reunite with her first love: the circus, after collecting medals from Europe and throughout the world on a handbike and travelling up to 80 passes with the strength of her arms.[9][10]

In Switzerland, education provides suitable measures for children and adolescents who have exceptional educational requirements due to a mental or physical handicap.[11][12]

Since 2016, as a Test Pilot, Silke Pan contributed to the development of the Twicce exoskeleton that allowed her to take part in several competitions from 2016 to 2021:

Cybathlon 2016, finalist & 4th place;

Cybathlon experience 2017, 1st place three times a row,

Cybathlon experience 2018, 1st place,

Cybathlon 2021, 2nd place against nine competitors from five countries (the United States, Russia, Korea, India, and France).[13][14]

The Cirque de Noël de Moudon becomes the first in the world to welcome an artist in a wheelchair, after Silke Pan returns to the circus fourteen years after the incident. [15]

Professional Career

Silke Pan has ridden to the top of several passes, some of which were more than 100 kilometers long.[16]

At the marathon in Heidelberg in 2013, she sets the world record.[1]

In 2019, Silke Pan visited and crossed 30 Swiss lakes on a course of 980 kilometers as part of the Le Tour des Lacs project.[17]

In 2021, at UCI Para-cycling Road World Championships, the women’s H4 title raced over 58.8km, saw Jennette Jansen of The Netherlands earn gold in 1:49:49 from Swiss riders Sandra Stockli, who clocked 1:51:52, and Silke Pan, who finished in 1:52:07.[18][19]
