Eton College pupils ´undaunted by Everest Olympics trek´
Thirteen-year-old Magnus Burgess-Smith told the Evening Standard that he's not even daunted at the prospect of being the youngest in the group.
He told the newspaper: "I've not done something like this before. I've been training hard running and doing sport at school.
"I can't wait to get back and when people ask me what I did over Easter I'll be able to say, 'I went to Everest'."
A total of eight boys are going on the trip from the private school, ranging from 13 to 15 years-old.
If they are successful, this will be the first time an Olympic flag has been flown from the mountain. The group set off on their journey yesterday and expect their trek to last 18 days in total.
