Man completes first unassisted solo trek across Antarctica

"An American explorer has become the first person to complete a solo and unassisted crossing of Antarctica. In a marathon final push, Colin O'Brady trekked 125 kilometers (77 miles) in 32 hours."

"O'Brady and British Army Captain Louis Rudd, 49, departed separately on November 3 from Union Glacier on a race across Antarctica alone and unassisted. Rudd is still one or two days behind."

The dw article was written by "Chase Winter" :lol: Yes, really.

Crazy achievement, I'd be interested in a list of the people that challenge has defied. Shackleton for one (albeit with much less advanced equipment) and latterly poor Henry Worsley of course.

Shackleton's failure was due to an inability to even land on the ice near enough to start!

Silly bástards it will just get longer.
