Kenton Cool

In detail

In 2012 Kenton fulfilled the Samsung Olympic Games Pledge by taking an Olympic Gold medal awarded to the 1922 Everest Expedition at the 1924 Winter Olympics by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, to the top of Mount Everest, thus fulfilling a 90 year old Pledge to see one of the medals successfully reach the summit. In 2011 Kenton became the focus of the world''s media after proving that 3G was now accessible on the summit of Mount Everest.
