Excellent photography and no mean feat to climb a mountain, and not just any mountain, carrying an Olympic torch.

Chinese official confirmed some time ago the torch would be carried to the summit of Everest in a relay race some time during May 2008. The team of about 80 climbers (from 18 to 23 years old) would ascend the peak via the south side and descend via the north side. Team members' selecton would have started in 2004, and the chosen climbers would train since then, including a rehearsal run in 2007.

A 23-year-old Tibetan woman named Tsering Wangmo carried the flame to the peak of Mount Everest. She and four other climbers, two of whom are Tibetan and two of whom are Han Chinese, passed the torch to each other on the relay to the summit. The climbers reached the summit at 9:18 a.m. Thursday local time, which is 9:18 p.m. Wednesday Eastern Time.



Good to see they included ladies in the team in what is usually a male dominated sport
