VIDEO: Insane Ultrarunner Climbed Everest Twice In A Week — Here’s Why He Did It

Most people will never even attempt to climb Mount Everest. Of the people that do make the decision to do so, most of them will only ever climb it once.

Kilian Jornet definitely isn’t like most people who choose to summit Everest. The ultrarunner was looking for a new challenge after winning all of the big races in his career, so he decided to start setting the fastest times for ascending and descending mountains.

Below, Jornet talks about his motivations for taking on the challenge and how he ended up scaling taking on Everest twice in the same week.
