Khoo Swee Chiow is the first Southeast Asian and fourth in
the world to complete the "Adventure Grand Slam": the North and South Poles
and the Seven Summits. His is an unlikely story. Plagued by fear of heights
during childhood, Chiow's love for adventure would see him eventually standing
at the top of the roof of the world, Mount Everest. His first key success,
Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro, fuelled his dreams and fired his imagination.
Despite many near-death experiences, the extreme cold, financial and physical
distress, severe loneliness, tears and failures, his iron will and sheer
determination kept him going until he achieved his goals. This is the
inspiring story of the real Khoo Swee Chiow, the story behind the headlines.
