By now, we’re all well aware of Kilian Jornet’s exploits in the Himalaya this spring. This video was put out by Suunto – one of his sponsors – to celebrate and congratulate him on his accomplishments. It doesn’t really share anything new, nor does it have footage from his Everest summits, but it does remind us of what an exceptional athlete Jornet truly is. Speed records and double summits without oxygen are impressive enough, but the fact that he does these things with humility and grace is something special too.
