Canadian courage conquers new heights?

‘It is not the absence of fear, but rather the presence of confidence under fearful circumstances that is characteristic of the brave person’ (Ben-Ze’ev, The Subtlety of Emotions, 2000, p. 483).

and yet:

‘There are also a small number of people who are relatively impervious to fear … These people may be fearless but they are not courageous—they have no fear to cope with or overcome.’ (ibid.)

Either way, we’re winners but does this guy look courageous or fearless?
