The group of climbers, among Sochi's growing list of sport ambassadors, began their quest to place the Sochi 2014 flag on the summits of the world's highest mountains, in January 2007. The expedition is scheduled to be completed by July 4, when the 119th IOC session kicks-off in Guatemala to select the host city for the 2014 Winter Games. The next stops along the global trek include Europe's Mt. Elbrus (5462 m), Africa's Mt. Kilimanjaro (5895 m), and Mt. Everest (8848 m), in Asia.
