Deysel
left for Kilimanjaro on Monday 7 January, leading an exciting group of climbers
including O Magazine editor and
gsport’s June 2007 Woman Thami Ngubeni, to the second destination on her Seven Summits schedule.

was accompanied by Daley Thompson – renowned UK former Olympic decathlete gold medalist
and fellow Laureus Sport for Good member.

– South America), Denali (Alaska – North
America) and finally Vinson Massif (Antarctica).
