US adventurer completes first unaided solo trek across Antarctica

A 33-year-old man from the United States has become the first person to complete a solo trek across Antarctica without any assistance.

Colin O’Brady finished the 1,500km journey across the frozen continent in 54 days, lugging his supplies on a sled as he skied in bone-chilling temperatures from north to south.

“I accomplished my goal: to become the first person in history to traverse the continent of Antarctica coast to coast solo, unsupported and unaided,” O’Brady wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday, after covering the final 124km in one big push that lasted 32 hours.

“While the last 32 hours were some of the most challenging hours of my life, they have quite honestly been some of the best moments I have ever experienced,” he wrote.

“I was locked in a deep flow state the entire time, equally focused on the end goal, while allowing my mind to recount the profound lessons of this journey. I’m delirious writing this as I haven’t slept yet.”

His voyage was tracked by GPS, and live updates of the trip were provided daily on his personal website.

His wife, Jenna Besaw, says she and O’Brady’s family stayed up all night tracking his progress and that he called as soon as he finished to tell them “I did it!”

O’Brady and an Englishman, Army Captain Louis Rudd, 49, set off individually on November 3 from Union Glacier in a bid to be the first to complete a solo, unassisted crossing of the southernmost continent, whose landmass is almost entirely covered by a vast ice sheet.
