Episode Info:

In this week’s episode, I talked with an old acquaintance, Doug Ingram. Doug has led a fascinating life; I could probably spend hours talking and recording with him on his days as a coach, at the USOC and mountaineering.

During this episode we talk about some of his jobs at the USOC including being responsible for getting everyone and everything to the Olympic Games including how the equestrian folks get their horses to places like Sydney, Australia.

We focus on his mountaineering exploits including his trip to Antarctica and, of course, Everest. The inspiration for the interview came from the now famous photo of the long line of people waiting to summit Everest. Please check out the photo from when Doug reached the summit and the photo from 2019. There is a stark contrast!

Part of our discussion includes the process of acclimatizing on Everest; Doug shares his opinions on how the quest to climb Everest has changed. Hint: a lot might have to do with “Into Thin Air”.

Please check out the smartercoaching website for photos of the Hillary Step in 2013 and compare to the photo of Hillary Step in 2019.
