Jacquelin Kaur, the daughter of former national athlete Melinder Kaur, has etched her name into the Malaysia Book of Records with an awe-inspiring achievement: at just six years old, she has become the youngest Malaysian to reach the base camp of Mount Everest, the world’s tallest peak. Melinder, who accompanied Jacquelin on this remarkable expedition, proudly shared several photos on Instagram to announce her daughter’s extraordinary feat. In the snapshots, they can be seen standing proudly in front of a massive rock engraved with the words “EVEREST BASE CAMP.” While awaiting official confirmation, it appears that the Malaysia Book of Records has unofficially recognized this remarkable accomplishment by featuring it on its official Instagram Stories.
Jacquelin’s achievement is nothing short of extraordinary, considering that the Everest base camp is perched at a staggering elevation of 5,364 meters above sea level. Jacquelin and her team undertook a five-day journey to conquer this remarkable expedition.
Back on August 9, Timesport reported that Jacquelin had a burning aspiration to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a record-breaker herself. Melinder Kaur herself boasts an impressive array of five national records, including her outstanding performance in the 3,000m steeplechase, where she clocked an impressive 10:55.31 time, a record that has remained unbroken since the Malaysia Games in Melaka back in 2010.
