ONE GIRL.ONE RECORD.ONE CONTINENT.

— WOMENS SPEED RECORD TO THE SOUTH POLE, DECEMBER 2024

Unsupported solo expedition: meaning I'm not allowed any outside help, I have to carry all my equipment and food from start to finish.

My goal is to ski under 30 days to set the new women speed record.

I'm deeply driven to achieve my goals, always giving it my all, even when it feels like
the odds are against me. Stepping out of my comfort zone and pushing limits is my
way of working.
I'm dedicated, organized, and face challenges head-on, especially
when I will be navigating solo in the world's most extreme places. The record
attempt is not just about physical endurance; it's about staying sharp mentally too.
No matter what hurdles come my way, I will stay calm and ensure that every ounce
of energy is put to good use.

My journey to the South Pole

Altitude 2,835 meters above sea level (masl.) which corresponds to 3,500-4,000 masl. at the equator

I will eat 6,000 kcal per day, consumes 8-10,000 kcal

The temperature is between -15 and -45°C which can feel like -70°C with the windchill.

The Katabatic winds follow the terrain from the center and towards the sea, this means headwinds – all the way

Amundsen called the snow on Antarctica “fish glue“ because it's extremely dry and has lost its structure due to a lot of wind. This means extremely poor glide.

I'll fly from Punta Arenas to Union Glacier (Antarctica) and from there I will fly to my start point Hercules Inlet. 

I will start at sea level and ski up to 2,835 moh, this means up hill all the way to the South Pole

I will have live tracking and update online along the way. 

Satellite phone, GPS / Tracker and compass will be with me. 

Only eight women have completed an solo and unsupported expedition to the South Pole.
