Gorgeous 22 year-old British girl conquers Mt. Qomolangma
09:37, May 21, 2010  

According to The Times, although Bonita Norris, a beautiful 22-year-old British girl, only began her mountaineering career last year, she became the youngest British female to climb Mt. Qomolangma successfully.

Bonita is a university student in Royal Holloway. Her success has made many people who are familiar with her struck dumb. We should mention that Bonita began her mountain- climbing career in 2009 and she has conquered the 8,163-meter-high Manaslu Mountain in the same year.

During an interview with The Times, Bonita's mother said that she was so proud that her daughter can stand on the highest mountain of the world. In fact, Bonita had never climbed any high mountain, even the 1000-meter-high Snowdon, before 2009. When she was still 17 years old, she used to tell her father that she would climb the Mt. Qomolangma one day. In order to improve her physique and realize her dream in 2010, she joined in many marathon races and ran at least 50 miles every week.

Bonita has also broken the record of Victoria James, who conquered the mountain at 25. This week, the 13-year-old American Jordan Romero is going to challenge the mountain in an attempt to be the youngest in the world to scale the peak.
