Tom Belz conquers Kilimanjaro
August 2018, Tom Belz, Mammut Brand Ambassador crowned his dream: climbing Kilimanjaro! At age of 8, he was diagnosed with bone cancer and has since lived with one leg and his inseparable crutches. A difficult project for Tom and his companions, which in fact required blood, sweat and many tears. The journey of his life has been filmed by a team of filmmakers who managed to capture all the emotions and impressions of this great adventure. “The strong goat”, shows the challenges that the 31 years old had to face and the way he pushed himself beyond his limits. This incredible documentary will participate this year at the European Outdoor Film Tour, which will start in October. Thanks to the support of his friends and Mammut brand, he succeeded in his venture: he started his great project on 2nd of August and after 7 days, on 9th of August he reached the summit with its 5895 mt.
” It’s unbelievable! When I reached the summit, I felt completely overwhelmed and amazingly proud! The climb was a great physical and mental challenge. When I actually achieved it, I simply felt happy – and extremely exhausted .”
