Kilian Jornet, endurance mountain runner from Catalany continues his record in history of that sport.  During this weekend he managed to win again (the sixth time) the Skyrunning World Cup. There was even no need for him to take part in the Matterhorn Ultraks race, because there was no one to defeat him according to the total scores achieved by the International Skyrunning Federation records. He was already the winner of the whole Series 14 days ago whilst winning the Sierre Zinal race.

Kilian has a really successful year recently. He collected the victories ín the Zegana  Aizkorri (Spain), Siere Zinal (Swiss), Marathon du Mont Blanc (France) or Hardrock Hundred Mile Endurance Run (USA). He tries again to achieve a new speed record of an ascent to Elbrus (the highest European peak – 5642 m) his trial last year failed due to extremely bad weather condition.
