Teenager to make South Pole trek

3 posts in this topic

A teenager will attempt the fastest ever trek to the South Pole on foot this year, in the process becoming the youngest man to complete the journey.

Parker Liautaud, a 19-year-old geology student at Yale University, and expedition partner Doug Stoup, will depart from the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica on December 3 and ski 397 miles (640km) to the South Pole.

In doing so the pair hope to break the 22-day speed record for their journey, which would also make Mr Liautaud the youngest man ever to ski to the South Pole.
