Is Kilian Jornet Really Going to Go for a Second Everest Record This Season?

#pro – if you don’t follow @kilianjornet, stop reading this caption and go follow him. I’m lucky to be surrounded by some amazing athletes on a daily basis. But Kilian…wow. Today he made a 26-hour push from Base Camp to the summit of #Everest, without supplemental oxygen. This is superhuman. But three things make it even wilder. First, he suffered gastro distress throughout the summit push but somehow suffered through and still stood on top. Second, he thinks he can do it faster and hopes to recover in time to make another attempt before this season ends. Third, after 30+ hours awake and enduring real suffering, he still graciously signed autographs in ABC before sleeping or eating. I am so blown away, humbled and inspired for my attempt. Congratulations Kilian! #everestnofilter #everest2017
