Mountain sports legend, Kilian Jornet, official brand ambassador of COROS!
March 7, 2022 is a day that will undoubtedly go down in the history of the COROS brand. One of the market leaders in multisport watches has just announced a partnership with Kilian Jornet – a modern mountain sports icon. An outstanding ski mountaineer and ultra runner has officially joined Team COROS – a group of multiple world record holders in mountain and cross-country disciplines. For the purpose of setting more records, Jornet will henceforth use the APEX PRO watch.
Catalan Kilian Jornet is regarded as one of the most accomplished athletes in history for extreme mountain sports. In his own words:
I consider myself a 360º mountain athlete because I like the versatility to be able to be in the mountains every day. I like running, racing in either ski mountaineering or trail running, crossings, climbing summits, chaining peaks…
Modestly for a man whose list of his achievements makes a gigantic impression not only on lovers of the disciplines Kilian practices, but also on people outside their circles. Listing a list of his mountain accomplishments is a topic for a separate article, so let’s just limit ourselves to stating the fact that we are talking about a man who twice (!) within …a week ran up and down Mount Everest (May 2017), and that without oxygen support! At the same time he is the creator of the project “Summits of my life”, referring to speed climbing the highest and most difficult peaks on all continents. Little..? Let’s add that Jornet has been regularly competing in the most prestigious ultra competitions around the world for more than a dozen years, winning most of them; winning the Hardrock 100 4 times or winning UTMB 3 times are the best confirmation of that.
