Day 54: FINISH LINE !!! I did it! The Impossible First ✅. 32 hours and 30 minutes after leaving my last camp early Christmas morning, I covered the remaining ~ 80 miles in one continuous "Antarctica Ultramarathon" push to the finish line The wooden in the Ross Ice Shelf, where Antarctica's land mass ends and the sea ice begins. As I pulled my sled over this invisible line, I accomplished my goal: to become the first person in history to traverse the continent of Antarctica coast to coast solo, unsupported and unaided. I was ever experienced. I was I'm delirious writing this as I have not slept yet. There is so much to process and integrate and there wi I burst into tears making this call. I was wasted finishing. I was "It always seems impossible until it 's something that we have our step with me and guided me with your courage and strength. It's our dream in reality and proved that Impossible First is indeed possible." It always seems impossible until it's done. "- Nelson Mandela. # The IposposibleFirst # BePossible
O'Brady said in the Instagram it proved that it was possible to succeed crossing Antarctica alone without support and it was possible to impossible until everything was successful I quote the saying of Mr. Nelson Mandela , a South African politician who seems to be thinking.
O'Brady said in a march of about two months or so that Mr. O'Brady had been absent for about half a day on November 29 and kept on advancing all the time except sleeping in a tent at night. Mr. O'Brady said that he was absent from the tent earlier than usual at Christmas Eve, ate twice as much as usual, and called his wife. And since I woke up, Mr. O'Brady kept on going insomnia good for 32 hours. Mr. O'Brady, who broke the 78 miles distance with a 32 hour attack, arrived at the goal point on December 26th.
About threatening attacks over the last 32 hours, "O something I do not understand has overcome myself," O'Brady said in a telephone interview. Mr. O'Brady seems to have concentrated very much without listening to music during the attack, he said that he was in a very deep and beautiful flow state. It was said that there was a slight downhill in the last journey, so skiing was able to run, which seems to have helped a long distance attack successful.
Actually, he started the same point on the same day as O'Brady, and a man belonging to the British Army called Mr. Lou Rudd, who also aims to cross Antarctica without sole support, also has a slight delay behind O'Brady in Antarctica During the march. Henry Worsley, a 49-year-old friend of Mr. Rudd, also aimed to cross the Antarctic continent without support in 2016, but abandoned by bacterial peritonitis just 50 km before the goal point, although it was brought to the hospital He died afterwards. Mr. Rudd has already approached the goal point, and it is supposed to schedule on December 29, 2018 in the supposition.
O'Brady says not to leave immediately from the goal point but to stretch the tent and wait for arrival of rival Rudd. "I close my eyes here, wait for Lou's arrival, and return to the Union glacier where there are Antarctic bases etc. together," O'Brady said.
