Guinness World Record recognises Shehroze Kashif as youngest climber to summit K2, Everest



KARACHI: Pakistani mountaineer Shehroze Kashif has set Guinness World Records for being the youngest climber to summit Mount Everest and K2.

Nineteen-year-old Shehroze, who is also known as Broad Boy, summited two tallest mountains — the 8,849-metre-high Everest and 8,611-metre-high K2.

Shehroze was first included in the Guinness book of world records back in 2021.

“Alhumdulilah! I have been published in the Guinness book of world records 2023!” Shehroze tweeted.

“My achievement of being the youngest in the world to climb the world’s tallest peaks Everest and K2 has been recognised,” he added. “Thank you #GWR #TheKarakoramclub and my family and followers.”

Shehroze also became the youngest climber in the world to summit 10 peaks of over 8,000m after scaling the world’s 11th tallest peak, Gasherbrum-1, in August this year.

Earlier this year, Shehroze had reached on top of Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and Makalu in Nepal in a span of less than a month before summiting Nanga Parbat.

While descending from Nanga Parbat this year, he along with partner Fazal Ali got stuck in extreme weather and lost contact at a point but both showed nerves of steel by surviving the night on the mountain and then descending at own to Camp 1.

“As we were descending from the summit, I did not understand where to go because there were no ropes fixed there,” Shehroze revealed after being rescued.

“We did not think that we will even wake up, that this is all the life there was to live.

“When I woke the next morning, I thought it was a miracle.”

The incident, though, didn’t dent Shehroze’s confidence and he immediately returned to the mountains to scale G-1 and G-2 in a span of five days.

Gary Kirsten’s PCB report comments are criticized by a former Pakistani cricket player.




In a recent report to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), former Test cricketer Atiq-uz-Zaman took issue with comments made by national white-ball men’s head coach Gary Kirsten.

The factors that led to Pakistan’s terrible performance at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 were allegedly listed in a confidential report that Kirsten authored for the PCB and had leaked to the public.

After an agonizing loss to archrivals India and an unexpected loss to co-host the United States of America (USA) in the campaign’s opening match, the former champions were unable to progress to the Super Eights stage.

The fitness and discipline problems with the Pakistan cricket team were brought to light in Kirsten’s assessment. But rather than offering a solution, Atiq-uz-Zaman scolded Kirsten harshly for complaining to the PCB.

As soon as Gary Kirsten entered, she began to whine. Why are you complaining to the board if you possess the necessary leadership abilities? During your visit, you ought to have found a solution. In light of this, I hope they perform well and cross my fingers, although Atiq expressed doubt about a speedy resolution.

A similar sentiment was expressed yesterday by former Pakistani captain Salman Butt, who said that management had to be doing rather than whining.

wouldHowever, Butt was questioned about whether Shaheen Afridi’s reported misbehavior will result in any consequences from the authorities during his appearance on ARY News’ Sports Room program.

Reacting to this, the former captain underlined that Shaheen Afridi should have been selected for every World Cup match, but instead the management continued to do so.

“They should have dropped him and gone with another player if he wasn’t disciplined,” Butt said.

“However, I believe anyone can do that if you gave him every chance in spite of all these problems and are now whining. Why give [famous people] such large wages when there’s no real benefit? questioned Salman Butt.

“It is the responsibility of management to act, not to complain,” he said.
