I was already extremely impressed by Kilian Jornet when I saw him run op and down Mount Olympus and a few surrounding peaks a few years ago (see video below). But last week blew my mind. I was recovering from the extraordinary achievement of the most Ultra of Ultra runners when he summited Everest in a record-breaking time of 28 hours and 30 minutes when news came yesterday that Kilian had done a second attempt and made it from Everest Base Camp to the Summit in 17 hours. Once again without supplemental oxygen. Just out of this world.
Superman Kilian Jornet Summits Everest twice in one week – no suplemental oxygen
