Just another foreign player with a bit of fancy footwork. Aye He might be great at home in the Sierra Nevada in June but can he do it in a midweek winters game away in the Grampians?

Is this the equivalent of a dirty Tuesday night away at Burnley?

If there was money in it, 50 Kenyans would finish ahead of him.

Sounds like he might be a bit of a Bastareaud

Quote:
The Everest feats, meanwhile, started coming under scrutiny. Where was the proof, critics demanded—the summit photos, the GPS track, the witnesses? Why did arguably his greatest accomplishment, in a career strewn with meticulously documented accomplishments, remain fuzzy? Forums like LetsRun hosted heated threads dissecting the issue in granular detail. In early 2018, the Spanish climbing magazine Desnivel ran a cover story calling Jornet out, stating, “He did not show definitive evidence of what he had done.” When I reached out to Himalayan Database, the Kathmandu-based organization that has been verifying Himalayan mountaineering since 1991, it had not confirmed either of the climbs. It was impossible not to wonder, in a post–Lance Armstrong fake-news world, if something was amiss.
