Yuichiro Miura
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yuichiro Miura, born October 12, 1932, is a Japanese alpinist who in 2003, at age 70, became the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest. This record was later broken. However, on May 26th 2008, Miura once again successfully summited Mt Everest at the age of 75.

This achievement is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He also became the first person to ski on Mount Everest on May 6, 1970. He descended nearly approximately 4,200 vertical feet from the South Col (elevation over 8,000 m (26,000 ft)). This feat was documented in 1975, in the film The Man Who Skied Down Everest. The film won the Academy Award for best documentary, the first sports film to do so.
