Renata Chlumska rarely says no to new challenges. On the 5:th of May 1999 she became the first Swedish and Czech woman to reach the summit of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest 8850 meters above sea level. Such an achievement would for most people likely mean the peak of a successful climbing career but for Renata it rather became a springboard towards future projects. But Renata was no novice when she climbed Mount Everest. She had already managed a couple of fantastic adventures. Four years earlier she was in charge of a Swedish Mount Everest expedition as base camp manager and film team coordinator. Once the climbing part was done she bicycled from Nepal to Sweden. A trip thru severe conditions that took almost several months to complete.
The year after, 1997, she arranged an expedition to Tibet and a mountain named Shishapangma. After three weeks of intense climbing and on here second summit bid Renata succeeded in becoming the first Swedish woman ever to reach above the magical 8000 meters without supplementary oxygen by reaching the Central Summit, 8006 meters. After that climb she rode a Royal Enfield motorcycle from India. In other words, Renata is no stranger to challenges.
Renatas interests for the great outdoors, travel and foreign countries started at an early age. Renatas parents emigrated from the former Czech Republic to Sweden where Renata is born. Already as a small girl her interest in sports, outdoor activities adventure and travel had grown beyond being just a hobby and became a lifestyle. During the summer holidays he family would pack their small car and travel all around Europe visiting foreign countries and new cities, camping and sleeping only in a tent. When Renata was twelve, she had explored most of the countries in Europe.
Being a very curious person with a big appetite for trying new sports Renata has constantly tried one sport after another. Starting with ballet and jazz ballet, badminton, bicycle racing, high diving and horseback riding to a bit more adventures sports like sky and scuba diving, paragliding, jiu-jitsu and climbing. Currently she is learning how to sail, and will this summer participate in the ÅF Offshore Race. And it was here curiosity that opened the door to mountaineering, but other factors contributed to here success.
-The tools for reaching the top, whether it is in the filed of sport or the cooperate world, are similar. The importance of motivated team members, communication, managing changes, facing the unexpected and to have magnetic goals are only a few of the ingredients needed.
So, it is not about been a superhuman, Renata says and believes that anyone can makes their dreams come thru if they have the right attitude and mindset. But Renata also knows that the line between success and failure is fragile and it takes a lot of hard work, engagement and determination to make it all the way to the top.

On September 15th 2006 Renata secured her position by becoming the first person ever to circumnavigate the US, excluding Alaska and Hawaii, by her own strength, kayaking and bicycling.

född 31 maj 1972 i Nylöse församling, är en svensk äventyrare.
Han nådde som förste svensk Sydpolen (solo, dock ej unsupported) i december 1998.
Skinnarmo begav sig år 2000 iväg på en expedition till Nordpolen tillsammans med äventyraren Göran Kropp. Kropp var tvungen att avbryta expeditionen på grund av förfrysning då han höll en pistol i handen en längre stund vid en isbjörnsattack. Skinnarmo nådde ensam polen och var även förste svensk att göra det.
År 2001 begav sig Skinnarmo tillsammans med ett flertal andra till Grönland med en segelbåt för att tillsammans med Torkel Ideström skida över Grönland på samma sätt som Fridtjof Nansen gjorde 1888. Expeditionen fick dock avbrytas mycket nära slutmålet efter att Ideström ramlat ner i en glaciärspricka och blivit hängande. Hjälp tillkallades och han överlevde.
År 2002 paddlade Skinnarmo i kajak tillsammans med två vänner, runt Svalbard i Salomon August Andrées spår.
År 2003 seglade han och ett flertal andra från Sydamerikas sydspets ner till Elefantön och senare vidare till Sydgeorgien för att skida över ön precis som Ernest Henry Shackleton gjorde år 1916.
Samtliga Ola Skinnarmos äventyr finns i dokumentär/reseberättelseformat på film.
The tragedy of the earthquake that devastated Nepal and northern India in April this year, brought together the authors of this project – Karina Oliani and Andrei Polessi – in a simple idea: transforming into a photography book, the best images of their experiences in the region. A book that in addition to serving as an anthropological visual record of these cultures – that inspires by aesthetic beauty and the discovery of new destinations – can also collaborate in some way with the victims of this terrible natural disaster. In practical terms, by contributing to the production of this book you will also help raise US $ 5,000, which will be used to build a school in Nepal. http://institutodharma.org/Andrei Polessi
