Nims Purja: Make your dreams a reality (re-release‪)‬ The High Performance Podcast

    • Sports

Today we are returning to a very special episode from the beginning of 2021, when we were lucky enough to chat to mountaineer Nims Purja. Since then, Nims’ incredible documentary: 14 Peaks: Nothing Is Impossible has been released on Netflix, following Nims as he takes on the quest to summit all 14 of the world's 8,000-meter peaks in just seven months. To celebrate Nims’ success, we wanted to re-release this episode, sharing with you all of the insights, moments of inspiration and wisdom he imparted during our conversation. 
Nims had a dream to become a Ghurka like his fathers and brothers before him. He made that dream a reality when he was 18. Six years later he became the first-ever Gurkha to join the UK Special Boat Service, regarded as the most elite unit in the military. 
Nims set himself a challenge to be the fastest person to climb the world's 14 highest peaks over 8,000m. The previous record for this achievement was 8 years. Nims Purja did it in 6 months. A team of 10 Sherpas led by Nims has just smashed one of the last great remaining prizes in mountaineering – the ascent of K2 during the winter season.
Enjoy this extended re-release of Nim's episode - Dream big and always believe that anything's possible!
