The King of Mountains – Marco De Gasperi, the champion (Men’s Open 2010) from Italy only takes 2 hours 33 minutes to return (from running to the peak). One way to the peak is only 01:35:29. Amazing feat !
This is the most satisfying photo taken by yours truly (KC). When Marco extends his arms while crossing the finishing line, it is as though he is carrying the Malaysian flag beneath his arm. (photographic equipment courtesy of SCHOnline).
