Video: Speed Climbing Cho Oyu with Kilian Jornet and Emelie Forsberg

This past spring, mountain runners Kilian Jornet and Emelie Forsberg set out to climb an 8000-meter peak as quickly as possible. With their busy schedules, neither of them had the time to spend two months climbing in the Himalaya, so they elected to try a radical new method of acclimatization and preparation that would ultimately cut down the time needed to summit Cho Oyu to less than two weeks.

In this video, we find out how they did it and see these two top athletes in their element in the mountains.
