Olympic medal has been taken to the summit

Kenton Cool, on his 10th successful climb, has taken one of the medals to the summit. This pledge had been made in 1924, at the Closing Cermemony of the first Winter Olympics in Chamonix, and finally, after 90 years, in the year of the 2012 Olympics in London, the promise has been fulfilled.

Congratulations to Kenton and his team, both on the mountain and here in UK, as well as the many people following this historic moment.
