Jenny Davis Completes Solo South Pole Ski

Jenny Davis has limped over the finish line on her solo, unsupported expedition from Hercules Inlet to the South Pole.

Like Wendy Searle, Davis had been aiming to best Johanna Davidsson’s 39-day woman’s record. For two-thirds of the journey she kept pace, before falling behind during the climb to the polar plateau.

Davis has been struggling with a thigh injury for the last few days, making for a painful slog to the finish. Her official time is not yet confirmed.
