Who Accomplishment is Better?

Is everybody ready to take a break from MLB, the NFL or even the NBA? Here's something that I found pretty interesting. I thought I would share this and see what kind of response I would get.

This past week, there has been 3 teenagers who have accomplished amazing feats in their respected sport. There are skill factors and danger factors involved.

Jordon Romero...This 13 year old is the youngest person ever to climb Mt. Everest. He is considered an expert in this field, because he has climbed mountains before. He does these accomplishments with a guide and a team. His goal is to climb the highest 7 mountains on earth. He has 1 to go.

Throughout history, there has been many deaths in trying to accomplish the feat. I guess you can say that there is a danger factor involved.


Jessica Watson...This 16 year old is a sail boat expert. She has just accomplished a task that she had not done before, As a matter of fact, very few people have. At least at her age. Jessica has just spent 7 months sailing around the world by herself in a 34 foot yacht with sails. She was always in contact with the proper authorities in case something would happen, but they were always 3-4 days away.btw of a ship.

She had to endure all the different weather elements, make any repairs to her yacht, and pray that no white shark would attack her. I just don't see how the authorities could help out with a shark attack. Well, they couldn't!


Jordan Spieth....This 16 year old golfer is the reigning Junior U.S. Amateur Champion and ranked #1  of his amateur level. I guess you can say he is an expert at this level of play.

He has just played in the Byron Nelson Classic with other amateurs and professionals and came out being tied for 16th place, finishing under par.  He made the cut by 3 strokes. Even some of the professionals didn't make the cut. He also has qualified for a PGA tournament.

To pick who the most impressive feat is, I mostly went by the danger factor involved. They are all very good at what they do. I picked Jessica Watson as the most impressive feat to accomplish. She spent 7 long months out in the ocean with all the weather elements and sharks. The skill and endurance she had to have is unbelieveable.

Who do you think is the most impressive accomplishment?
