A tenth Everest summit for Kenton Cool, this time with an Olympic gold medal for company.
Top British mountaineer and guide Kenton Cool has summited Everest again, this time with an Olympic gold medal for company rather than Rannulph Fiennes or a Samsung phone.
Cool made the summit in the early at midnight British time according to the BBC and carried with him the medal from the 1924 Winter Olympics 'fulfilling a pledge made by a member of the 1922 British Everest expedition'. Something he describes as 'humbling'.
We guess you'll either buy into the historical pledge fulfillment Olympic thing or not. The gist of it was that a member of the unsuccessful 1922 British Everest Expedition promised to place a winter Olympics gold medal on the summit of the mountain, but never succeeded.
If that doesn't make sense, check our the video at www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-17510606 where Kenton explains it all.
Whatever you make of that, Cool's record-breaking tenth ascent is a pretty extraordinary achievement.
