Ascent of Eiffel towerAnyone see Eurosports coverage of the reintroduction of running up the Eiffel Tower ?
Apparently 1665 steps, elevation of 279 metres.
Winner finished in 7min 50sec (?) which is 35 meteres and over 200 steps per min. Plus there were the occasional flat bits to run along.
It was at night with no real intermediate splits, or helpful graphics to show where the runners were on the tower.
But I suppose the external shots of the tower were pretty good.
Got to give Kirby some credit for his commentary and keeping the entertainment going.
