Yuichiro Miura, an 80-year-old Japanese extreme skier who just missed becoming the oldest man to reach the summit of Mount Everest five years ago is back on the mountain to make another attempt at the title. Unfortunately for Miura, Sherchan, the slightly older man who nabbed the record a day before he could in 2008 is fast on his heels. (AP Photo/Binod Joshi, File)
